Everywhere I go I see people interacting with other people like its completely normal. They handle anything the other person gives them like its nothing, both parties just know what to do in that situation. I never know what to do. People talk to me and I get so uncomfortable, because I don't know what to do or say. I feel like I'm not a real person, like I'm just a shadow or a ghost that doesn't know what it means to be a human or how to interact with other humans. I just don't know what to say or what to do with other people. Most of the day I go about my business trying to avoid interactions with other people because I just don't know what to do. I hate that about myself but I don't know how to change, it scares me.

I used to be like you, I still am for the most part. I understood how awkward I was socially and how conversation came so easy to other people. I wanted to change so I've been allowing myself to change. It's often as easy as asking someone what they do, how long they've been doing it for, how they know a mutual friend etc. I've been reaching out to other people, striking up conversations in new environments and all it's done is benefit me. I'm still not to the point where the other party and I become best friends after one conversation (I'm far from it) but it's something to aim for, to pick up from other people.

Start with, Hello and how are you? And go from there.

You'll get there, all it takes is a little practice.
