Say I walk into a room for the first time. I don't know how to introduce myself or describe myself.



I feel like, "Who am I?" What is there about me I can describe? Never had a career, or jobs hardly...my core is I'm a drunk (35 yrs sober though) and feel emotionally crappy a lot. So that's how I'd describe myself. But you just don't shake hands with someone for the first time and say, "Hi, I'm damaged."



Anybody have anything to say about this feeling?
I'd always assumed it was normal. If the occasion that called for introducing myself was that I'd just walked into a room, I'd probably consider what I was in the room for, what others were there for -- and what common interests we might consequently have.

Here's where I posted about this issue before: Meet the Moderators and Administrators!
