during an argument, my bf told me i take myself too seriously and it was preventing me from making friends. i couldnt argue back because i realised how true it was.. i am easily irritated and annoyed, and im not the cheerful, happy go lucky person that i was when i had friends around me.
how do i get out of this? how do i stop taking myself so seriously and just loosen up? it's affecting my internship as well because the director keeps telling me i need to be open and ask questions and feel free to talk to people in the office and learn from them, instead of just focusing on the tasks i'm assigned.
