Okay so this sounds weird but I really have trouble making friends. I consider myself to be very easy going, friendly and caring. The friends I do have I hold very near and dear to my heart and would do anything for.
However I have no idea how I made most of my friends. Most of them I thing are just because we have similar childhood circumstances and we bond on that fact. I have no idea how to make friends outside of my childhood circumstances though.
I try, I just feel like I have nothing in common with people, and since I also consider myself a social misfit, I find it very difficult to go into social situations and make conversations with just anyone.
I am lost with what I can do. I don't have much self-esteem or confidence and because of that I have not been able to figure out how to do it yet. I know that if I really want it I can get it, but I must not want it enough. I even have this issue when attempting to find a job. This lacking of self confidence and self esteem really bits me in the butt. UUUUGGGHHH what to do what to do.
