Hi, I'm in my early 40s and starting to feel the consequences of putting work before relationships. I'm looking to change that and hope that I can instill the importance of friendships into my children. Unfortunately I need to lead by example, :). So here goes.
I am more comfortable with inanimate objects and animals than I am with people. I also tend to put my feet in my mouth, both of them. I suppose due to my lack of social practice. More things I wish to change. I truly hope it's not too late at this age.
I don't have a profile picture of myself to put up as I'm not comfortable with how I look (it always gives me a shock :)) and usually get past this by keeping busy. The picture is a poster my daughter made for a school campaign, which I hope to stay true to and help fight for though I would definitely prefer if there was no need to do so.
I would like to be involved in local community services to get me up and moving and socially involved, but I can't seem to find anything suitable around me, and I don't really know where to start. Pointers would be welcomed. I gave up my career as I could no longer juggle that and my children and health. So now I have most mornings free.
Looking forward to making new (safe) connections.
