Social Anxiety Soap Opera

I have been attending a new church. I love the worship, and the people are nice enough, but I am having a hard time getting past the surface and finding real friends. As an introvert, coffee hour terrifies me. When I do manage to go, I only make it about 10 feet into the parish hall, and give it about five wrenching minutes before I flee. It pains me to see all those people laughing and having fun, and having to feel on the outside of things.
