So, everyone at my school and on the internet is obsessed with TV shows and movies, especially anime and superhero movies. Whenever I'm with my squad and they make a "Friends" reference or something, it puts me in an awkward position because I can't pitch in. Moreover, I can't even recognize half the actors/actresses people go on about.
During my childhood I was literally obsessed with the TV. I used to binge watch many cartoons and watch the same movies over and over again. However, as I entered my teens, I guess that spark just kinda died out.
It makes me feel left out and slightly embarrassed given that I'm a socially awkward person. Is it okay to feel this way?
I'm sorry if I sounded cringey or over-dramatic, but I really wanted to get this off my chest.
