Also, the pain in her voice and the quivering all throughout the talk just makes me feel for her even more.

@pandaswag and @sriguhan, have you guys ever considered looking into doing some volunteer work where you are?


1) It gets you out and about.

2) Gets you communicating with people more.

3) Helping others is rewarding in its own way.

4) Can build your confidence.

Bonus: It increases the chances of you creating bonds and relationships.

Might be something you could consider.

Yeah I thought about it. My area doesn't really have anything I'm interested in. And I don't want to disingenuously volunteer for something. Cause I think they'd see right through that.

Sometimes something is better than nothing. Even if you would be disingenuous, even if people will see right through you. Fact of the matter is you'd be helping someone or contributing to a worthwhile cause and that is worth a lot of beans if you ask me. 

Just throwing my two cents in there.
