Hello Jenny

>I am no fun at all<

That's touching.

I don't want to bore the socks off you by telling you to love your depression, but I have found that what I thought was a debility has had some redeeming value and is an important and valuable part of me. I have reservations about people deciding (according to what criteria?) that such and such a quality they have is unacceptable.

But what can I say that makes any difference? Tell you to read "The Ugly Duckling"?
Some people *are* more reserved than others.
We live in a culture that prizes certain qualities and devalues others.
My opinion of our culture is not so high I think that is worth it.

I'm 54. I have been introverted and reserved (if dogmatic) all my life.
I'm not saying anything in particular, just go with the flow.
