silvirain saidI'm not a naturally social person. I just graduated community college and am transferring elsewhere now. Yeah I get along great with everyone and love to talk because I know them. No one talks to me at the gym or helps me I have no idea what I'm doing there, that's why I stick to cardio.
I understand, it probably feels a little overwhelming, but....
You also need to learn to take the initiative. What are you wanting at the gym? You are paying to be there, so I suggest you talk to the management about whether they provide someone to work with you so you will know how to use the machines.
Many here aren't "naturally social", but you learn to get out of your comfort zone and do it... because in the long run its in your best interest.
I remember when I was 19, I decided I wanted to be on my campus newspaper, but writing wasn't enough.. I wanted to be the editor and make that newspaper better.... I did, we doubled the issue number each semester.
You need to look around you and thing about those things you want to do and to learn. Volunteer!!! When I was in 7th grade, I realized I wanted to do more than just show my quarter horse, I wanted to teach. I asked to hang out at some of the larger stables and I started teaching horsemanship when I was in 9th grade..... I LOVED IT! I developed friendships, but you must take the initiative to improve your life, if you find it "wanting" now.
