“I'm so nervous at work. I'm a teenager and I work for McDonald's, and my coworkers are all really cool and interesting. At times, it feels like they're all best friends and I'm just an outsider. I try my best to be nice to everybody and to talk even when it's the most frightening thing in the world to me. I just want to belong and not to have to stress over people. I try my best to be nice and fair to everyone, but it never works. It's making me get depressed, because I'm getting really lonely.”
