“I just started this job with a group who has worked together for 15+ years. They work so well together like a well-oiled machine and the best I can do is just fumble around blindly. They also complain about how I never talk, but I'm just too scared to even think about engaging them in conversation. I don't want to mess up anything and get fired. I NEED to pay off my student loans and I live in a horrible job market. This is the only place that would even look at my resume.”
