I feel like it's unacceptable

[deleted account] ( 1 mom has responded )

As a woman, I feel like it's unacceptable to be as socially incompetent as I am. If I were married it would be job to make plans and keep everything organized, It's my job to talk to other moms to set up play dates, it's my job to talk to teachers, it's my job to create friendships so my daughter can grow up knowing what a healthy social life looks like, etc.....

However I have not been able to do any of these. I get nervous, I constantly feel like people are judging me, I can't hold eye contact, I can't talk on the phone, I sound like a 12 year old, and I can't even make the smallest of small talk without feeling like I'm going to hyperventilate and pass out.

Do you all have advice on developing social skills? I'm desperate. I'm tired of pushing people away, not having any friends, always feeling like people are laughing at or judging me, and not having anyone for my daughter to play with.
