How does an adult become involved in a community (online or otherwise)?
So one way is to just show up, but then what about if you have a nearly crippling social anxiety problem?
My personal social issues are not crippling but I do feel awkward talking to people I don’t know. Does that get easier with practice? I have classes with real people and I make some small tall but not enough to make a real friend. Maybe I should ask people more questions. How do you learn to care about a stranger’s life?
