looking for some friends to talk.

my name is albert white, i'm 21 years old and i have what is called autism. i just got signed on this board to help build my social skills and grow in this world. 

i go this this job training program called Halas/Envison Unlimed. i want build my job skills to see where this will lead into.

i've been at the workshop for approximately about 5 months i think, but so far, i made a bit of a progress here besides being social. 

i've been to afraid to talk to people because of the way i interact.  maybe i've been acting too goofy over here. is it too much for me.

this may be the part of the reason why i've not made i lot of friends in this workshop. and to be honest, it stinks. 

how could i do right?

  • Keep practicing. Learn by observing how others interact and work on modeling that behavior. Make sure that you have good people around you, don't let people take advantage of you. One day, you'll notice a breakthrough and it will all be worth it.

  • Is there no one else who likes goofy? I like goofy.

    Perhaps therre is another activity that would attract more people with similar attitudes, interests and personalities? Social skills 101 would start with what am i good at that attracts people.

    It is also possible that people like you better than you think. We all have a negativity bias in our brains.
    Sometimes I think a person doesn't like me when that person doesn't like anyone too. It's not as personal as you think.

    It keeps getting better. At least you know to ask the question which a lot of people won't or can't

    I'm still learning and i have autism too.

    Then you have identified yourself why. Put your phone away and engange with those who are around you.
