How to be less socially awkward at a social event.

How to be less socially awkward at a social event.

I'm married to a man who has like has millions of friends. At first, I thought "wow, I'm going to have heaps of friends too!" I was excited at the idea that I'm going to more party, dinners and attending to MORE social events. But I forgot... I'm socially awkward. I am a classic case of a wallflower. 

A few reasons why it was important for me not to be this weirdo that my husband married:

Firstly, I wanted Greg to feel proud of me, and not have his friends judge me behind his back. Secondly, I want to show him I'm making every effort to be in the clique. Third, I wanted to be accepted. Um... no we're not in high school, at that time most of us were pushing 30 and some with kids.  

ARE YOU AN INTROVERT MUM?

Hi, my name is Lyn and I am an introvert mum and NO it does not mean I am not normal.

All my life, I could remember my parents [and the rest of the family] expected me to be this ‘bubbly‘ kid. “You need to talk more … you need to be more outgoing …” they would say. Of course, they had all great intentions.

So all thru school and even in my twenties, I always had to put on a ‘front’. I didn’t want to be an introvert person. I wanted to be that loud, ‘look at me‘ girl that everyone loves.
