"I don't want to be the quiet kid anymore.
I am a 16 year old kid in HS. I am too quiet nowadays. About 4 years ago I closed my self off from other people for the most part and have become awkward. I lost so many people that I never wanted to lose. I miss so many of them. People tried to get me to talk and I just didn't really talk so eventually they stopped talking to me. I don't want to be the quiet kid anymore. Now I'm taking some steps to try reconnecting with my old friends. I need just a little bit of help or advice on what to do. I know this is Confession Post and all, but I also need some advice."
