I'm a very introverted person, and I don't have much of a problem with that, but my mom is putting so much pressure on me to make friends. I mean, of course I would like to have more friends, but she doesn't see that my social anxiety prevents me from being comfortable talking to people, it's not easy for me to just "make a friend". Also, she gets really p***** off whenever a grade of mine falls below a B. I know she loves me, but she makes it seem like she'll only love me if I do well in school and become a social butterfly, but that's not me (clearly). I can barely explain my feelings because I don't even know what's going on in my head half the time. I just want my life to get better...

  • If you're truly lonely are the plenty of groups for social anxiety sufferers. If you first found some online and connected with people who have the same issues as you, you will see it's not as bad as you think. You're right your mom does love you but she does want what's best for you. Try telling her again exactly what's in your min and your heart. Write it out. I relate to you a lot so believe me I know what I'm talking about.

  • Sounds like you are on the right track. Keep the grades. You will find friends that appreciate you. Not everyone needs friends. Your best friend will marry you and your family/kids will keep you company.
