Bethania Gauterius

I’m a nerd with terrible vision too lol

My shyness I think is really the only thing that’s kept me from making friends. I’ve never gotten to know people well enough IRL to know if they like me or not. But I’m working on it. It’s super hard because I hate small talk. I just want to talk about books or storytelling or music. Jump right into something interesting. We’re both experiencing the same weather–we don’t need to talk about it. I never do anything interesting–my week is always fine and I’m sure yours was too. Even if it wasn’t, you’re still going to say it was.

I’m weird. I simultaneously feel not good enough to talk to someone and too good to talk to them. I’m judgmental, but fear being judged myself.

I fear I come across as rude when I don’t talk but it’s just because I’m shy. I overthink social interaction too much. It’s easier for me to jump into a group conversation but I feel like I’m intruding.
