  1. I guess I am more like a pusher, always trying to say something funny and then being left out and then turn to be the withdrawer.

    • That’s great self-insight. It sounds like if you just try to stay more engaged in the conversation without trying to be funny you will have a lot more success. Remember that you don’t have to do anything extraordinary to be accepted in the conversation, just listening attentively and reacting appropriately is all that’s needed for people to like you.

  2. I’ve done both, withdrawn and pushed, when I feel left out. Push when I feel comfortable with the group, Withdraw when unsure.

    I too am up in my own head most of the time, and I don’t pay attention to the group mood. Great advice. I need more empathy and patience and self-worth so I can stay in the moment and just BE, connected with others.
