I went to a birthday party today with my daughter for one of the kids in her class. It was a great party, but it just made me feel more alone. I didn't know anyone there and didn't know how to connect. I've been feeling very lonely lately. Also, I'm supposed to be throwing a birthday party for my other daughter in a couple of weeks and I'm scared. Scared of having to interact with people I don't know, scared nobody will come, scared that people won't have a good time.
So tonight I came home and wrote this poem, in my mind it's a rap song. I know it's great to focus on the positive and all that, but somehow writing this felt like a huge release. And I wanted to share it, maybe it will touch someone else who is feeling the same way I am today.

I don't know if you have the time or inclination but if you do, please try and have a look at this. I have this in audio format and it works much better when you listen to it instead of reading.
Amazon.com: How to Talk to Anyone, Anytime, Anywhere: The Secrets of Good Communication (9780517884539): Larry King, Bill Gilbert: Books
Last week, I had to go out to meet some people and just like you I was feeling anxious. Then I listened to Larry's voice and the amazing tips, and things just fell right back into place. He is an amazing guy.
Good luck for the party. Do bring some leftover cake if you can.

Thanks for reading, your kind responses brought a tear to my eye.
And thanks for the book recommendation cacheborn. I wish I could get the audio version downloadable and for less than $45, but the printed version is at the library so I'll make do with that for starters.
