Q: This is the continuation of the text.
Best regards.

If you look at the Internet, there is a mountain of information that fascinates you. Life and the information on the Internet make my heart grow weary. I try to make time to look at my mind for five minutes a day and not compare myself with anyone else. As you continue to do so, I can't help but believe that you will find yourself in the same place but with a different view.
A: I'm sorry, just one more thing! Instead of using (to not), you can turn it around and say (not to).
And instead of using (the) for (out of the day), you could use (my) for (out of my day).

(I try to take 5 minutes out of my day not to compare myself with others.)

You might also try using “shy” in the first sentence.

When I was a student, I was a little shy.
But when I was able to interact with people at work, I realized that I just didn’t make an effort before.

Looking at your first sentence, you used the word “attractive.” You could use that too!

When I was a student, I wasn’t attracted to being with other students. < this does not have a romantic meaning, it’s just “I didn’t want to be with them”
When I was a student, I wasn’t attracted to the other students. < this has a romantic meaning 😆

I’m happy to help, please let me know if I can explain anything else.
Q: I'm trying to make a continuation of a love story.
Here is the outline.

"A man and a woman fell in love with each other.
So she wrote her phone number on her book and gave it to him.
He really loved her and he wanted to phone her, but unfortunately he had his coat with the book stolen.
A few days later, she went to a restaurant and a waiter came over and asked her if she would share her table with someone else.
She told him that she wouldn't and a man came to your table and said, "excuse me, the waiter said you wouldn't mind sharing."
She looked up, and there the man she loved was again.
They both were astonished to see each others' faces."

And here are sentences of a continuation I made.

"After a moment, he managed to open his mouth, saying, "can I write my telephone number on your book this time?
Then, my coat with a book you give won't be stolen again."

Could you correct it, please?
Thank you.
