Any fellow ex-homeschoolers find it hard to relate to your coworkers because you didn't get the opportunity to relate to peers during school, and you now wish you hadn't been homeschooled?

Sometimes I feel that way, but then I think I really am probably more “normal” than I think I am and it’s really just my social anxiety.

No but I was too poor for little league sports and a lot of other things that made it hard to relate.

This didn't happen to you in college?

Yes, I felt this way in college too. I just didn't think my feeling of being an outcast would continue into my professional career. I can blend in, but socializing doesn't come naturally to me and I always over think everything.

Honestly no. I don’t talk about things like that with co workers. We either talk about our current lives or maybe college...but not usually before that.

During my PTO, my SM called me and asked me to start plugging myself in and he mentioned that I don't want to be left behind. He asked me to set up a call during my PTO to "catch up" with the rest of the team. I cannot wait to get out of this company as this is kinda touching my bottom line.

Planning a trip with my SO who makes less than me is difficult... I don't mind paying for extras so we can enjoy it, but then he feels bad if I offer. But hell... It's for me as much as it is for him.
