    Are you having trouble socializing with people?
    Do you feel so down about yourself most of the time that you can't present yourself in a social situation, or is it handicaping your life? I am here to help you through it. It doesn't have to be this way.

    Welcome to HubPages!

    You seem to be off to a good start. I do hope you enjoy yourself.

    As for having social issue? No. But, if I can ever help, just ask. smile big_smile

      I'm a closet narcissist and I'm an opinionated person who never shuts up. Is that a socialising problem? I've worked in retail so I also consider 99% of the population idiots.

      That's why I write on hubpages - I generally don't have to put up with people actually telling me what they think of my opinions big_smile

        Hi WryLilt!

        We all are opinionated to different degrees, and that makes us human and individuals. I personally have worked in retail too, among many other jobs where serving or selling to the public can be a bitch. Sometimes I have lost faith in humanity at times because people that come into your work to buy from you can forget what that sales associates are humans too, and at jobs like that we can be seen as "servants"; does that sound like you could relate to that feeling? lol, it can be a a bitch. Also, dealing with people in retail, you deal with all sorts, and including those who don't give off the most intelligent impressions when coming into that sort of establishment. There's a lot of people we can think of as idiots, and will piss us off, but there are a lot of good people out there too. Thing is, people will come in, people will go, people will piss you off or rub you the wrong way, life goes on.

        But in terms of being opinionated, it's only fair to share your true opinions but it doesn't always have to be in the harshest manner. Sometimes being overly opinionated can suggest traits of low self-image and wanted to project your own problems onto others without realizing it; I do it too, and I'm only merely suggesting that might be one reason you feel overly opinionated. Also, jealousy and hurt of the past can cause a passive aggression to make you feel better to not accept others. But people make mistakes, and you do too. We have to remember that sometimes. When I have a bad day and theres a slow person driving in front of me and didn't put on their directional, yeah I'll impulsively shout out, FUCKIN LEARN HOW YOU DRIVE YOU GEEZER...but in the end, express your opinions, but theres the right time and place for everything. I would refrain from expressing an opinion if you felt its only benefit would be to hurt the other person or put them down, being somewhat unnecessary. But if you feel strongly about an opinion, and you feel it would be for the right reasons, then say what your heart feels girl! We just have to balance our filters of what to say and what not to say. Sometimes we forget, and that's ok. But take a minute before opening your mouth to think about what the outcome will be, positive for you and the person listening, or something that will just make you look bad and perhaps you should keep it to yourself, or simply rephrase an opinion to not sound so harsh.

        I hope that helps, I'm just trying to state MY opinion simply objectively. smile

              Here is a list of hubs you might consider reading, to help you move forward.

              Frogdropping and Darkside, respectively, both great hubbers and writers. Their links are below.

                  Each link is bookmarked. wink The post is not saved by itself, if that's what you are trying to get to. I took time to post each link. I happen to think that they are two of the better writers who write about HubPages.

                  With regards to help for new people. smile

      Thank you, you too. I joined literally a few seconds ago and am already getting welcoming responses. I've always been quite the social butterfly so I thought I'd start a post to help others.

        Hey Starme,

        I don't have any social problems to speak of, however, I do realize that millions of others do. wink

    Hello.  Welcome.

    I don't know if anyone would be willing to jump into a conversation with you without first knowing your style and knowledge.  A few helpful hubs with forum participation would do the trick.

    Why is it that everyone feels the need to smoke Marijuana or drink alcohol to fit in with everyone else. if shouldn't these people accept yo for who you are and not try to influence you to do bad stuff.

    I am shy by nature but trying to do better.  I have made good strides, and I am a reasonably skilled public speaker.  I am somewhat shy in normal social situations, however.......
