It's very strange to feel myself go from being 200% introverted and shy to still introverted but not shy and instead seeking out people to make a connection with. I've isolated myself so hard that now at 21 I have such a hard time knowing how to make friends, most of all with other girls, which is what I would KILL for. I was raised to perceive other women as my competition but finally I've grown past that and now I appreciate them so FREAKING much and craving positive uplifting sisterhood-like relationships. How do you make friends as an adult? How do you go up to someone and say "hey I barely know you but I think we'd be great friends and I already like you, please ignore the fact that I'll be awkward for the next 5 times we meet" like..what?
Anyway, if I hear loud music I just want to drag whoever is with me to go dance for a bit and I'd have never wanted that a few years ago. It's so strange to reintroduce me to myself
