Growing up, I had terrible social anxiety. I already had poor people skills due to my rather insular lifestyle, and moving between three different schools during my high school years prevented me from establishing any lasting or meaningful friendships. I ended up spending those crucial developmental years as an outcast. The loneliness and lack of emotional support at home caused me to spiral into a deep depression.
