Try to reach beyond: Your comfort zone. Set some simple goals, i.e., to smile and say something at a social gathering to one new person. Practice beforehand some possible things to say. Join a social group that does some activity you like, ie, hiking or volleyball. Meet with a therapist to develop some goals and practice. Good luck and let us know how it goes.
