That is why I was depressed as a child

Umm... this could be interesting, since I was a shy socially awkward introvert myself, but you should give us more details about your life or something, if you actually want some answers to your post.

You were a wallflower as a child, and you didn't like it, and that caused you to be depressed?

That was me too :)

Based on your other posts brains I think you are trying very hard to break out of that image that you've got of yourself as a wall flower. I didn't like being a wall flower either when I was your age and once in a while I'd just act the complete opposite, I'd act loud and wild and showy but that didn't help either.

What helped me to not feel like a wall flower anymore was actually to just be myself. I embraced the awkwardness and the weirdness and somehow that seemed to appeal to people.

I could have written this!
I'm still very reserved but much more at ease than I used to be. Will never be the "life of the party" type, it's just my nature.

For me it was always on the outside, looking in. Hell, most of the time I am not even aware there's a party.

The thing about social skills is that they're 'skills'. Yeah so most people seem to just learn naturally but still you can put a little extra work in and learn them so only your real friends get to know how hyper you really are.
