This may sound crazy, but as an introvert myself i've always spent time alone. No going out or anything. While my youth is right in front of me, I reckon it would be wise to spend more time in authentic friendships. I mean, the anxiety and social retard-ism is still there, but I remember what an ecstasy it is to go out during this one time of life where I didn't seem so self-absorbed and reflective. Is there any way to act in an extroverted sense? Not outgoing as such, I'd like to be the cool muso dude (Already am, minus the cool though), but with an array of social skills and knowledge on media/artists and all the things other people are into. Is there any way of gaining confidence and extensive knowledge on various subjects? I wish to talk more and be less reserved. The introspective habbits have gotten the best of me, I think it's time to get out of my fucking shell. Tips, Insight, Experience or remarks would be great. Just need someones wisdom to rub off and give me info on what I should have my nose in and knowing the social morals etc etc.
Hit me, I'm determined to change my ways.
