The problems that I face:
I am an introvert.
I don't have ANY stuff to tell.
My life is boring. I don't do anything fun because I'm relatively poorer and more focused in achieving in life.
Even though I am focused in achieving in life, I've not achieved anything significant till date, and my hard work has generally gone in vain.
I've social anxiety and I fail to make eye contact with people most of the time. I have low self esteem as well.
I went to 3 doctors over the range of 5 years to cure the last thing, but doctors have failed to do it. Now, they say "you can't change everything in life, be content with what you've" and me too have started to not take it as a huge problem although it pains me sometimes badly.
Effects of my situation:
Not many people talk to me. Those who do; disrespect me.
Nobody invites me to lunch even when I explicitly asked them to do so. ( We've a culture of going together to lunch break).
Nobody seems to be interested in me, interested in talking with me.
I used to sit alone in last bench in my college days because nobody wanted to sit with me and I didn't want to sit with those who didn't want to sit with me. I wasn't like that few years ago before college. I hit my all time low in college.
Currently, I am in a new job. I am a fresh graduate. I am new to industry. I wanted to start with a clean slate and afresh but failed to do so here again.
Without being able to change my natural abilities like social anxiety, how do I make friends in workplace? Or anywhere for that matter.
It's not that I have 0 friends, I've few friends but they're not that close to me.
For further reference, When I post something on linkedin, very few people press the like between). I'm really frustrated with myself at this point. What is a way out of this?
I know they don't like me not because I'm an introvert. Being an introvert is not really a problem. Being underconfident is my problem.
