How can I become friends with someone who already has a tight friend group?? I am socially anxious so this is very hard for me!

Hey, thanks for reaching out to us I know it must be difficult but I am happy that you were brave enough to share. I know it can be hard trying to fit with a special group of people. This is completely normal trying to get a jump start, and I want to encourage you to first try what you are comfortable with.

It sounds like you really care about your relationships and the people you surround yourself with. I have to say, it is a great thing and I can tell if you just present yourself, they will be able to see how caring you are and be able to integrate you into the group. You can try to socially make friends with one of the members of the group and after a while they will let you into their groups and you can meet everyone there. And even if they are a really tight group, that doesn’t mean they are not capable of making new friends, sure it might be hard but they can always expands their group.

If you need help with anything else you can always call us at 403-264-8336 or text us at 587-333-2724.
