I am extremely shy and I have very little self confidence. I am happy when I am alone with my boyfriend, but completely sad when I am alone. I try so hard to hide it. I struggle making friends because of my shyness. I made friends with a group of people freshman year of college who never cared about me, and it ended abruptly. I am still mentally hurt by it because I thought that I had finally found real friends. I cannot relate with my family at all, and they often say mean and hurtful things to me. I dread being in school alone, and I also dread coming home for the holidays and seeing my family. I am only truly happy when I'm with my boyfriend. We are in a 3 year relationship and it's going very well. Some people who get to know me say that I have a beautiful personality inside, but they can tell i'm hiding it in public. What can I do to overcome this?
