    Default affect me in a negative way in...

    Is the sentence below acceptable, natural, or not natural? Thanks a lot.

    My inability to communicate with other people affects me in a negative way in making friends.

    It would be more natural to say 'Because of my inability to communicate with other people I don't make friends easily .'
