I have never been an exceptionally social person. Not that I don’t like people or socializing, but I am TERRIBLE at being the one to reach out, try to make friends, make the first move. I have been this way for as long as I can remember. Waiting for the phone to ring instead of calling someone myself. Waiting for a friend to ring the doorbell instead of them seeking me out.
Now…many years later….I am finding I have the same anxieties about online interactions (Twitter, FB, Blog Comments, etc.). I have developed a solid group of other moms and people that I follow on social media. I have just recently begun interacting with them instead of simply ready through feeds. I feel like this is putting myself out there and I feel the same twinge of possible rejection. Is this crazy?
