I’m really into posting questions these days (it’s because it is exam time and I’m procrastinating!!!)
I’m kind of a introspective person and I always attempt to analyze why I feel or act the way I do.
Regarding shyness….I think one of the main reasons why I don’t easily engage myself in conversations (with new people) is because I get this feeling that if I did I would be invading, like, it is none of my business and I should not be butting in, especially if the group of people know each other well and I am new.
I think it’s common for shy people to not speak unless spoken to. Does anyone else feel this way?
ALSO…(I know others feel this way) I feel my mind draws a blank when I’m with people I’m not really comfortable with…when I’m with my family I have no problem talking constantly…going from topic to topic…but with others I feel frantic when we have finished one subject – I don’t know what else to talk about because it seems my brain has gone blank (even though I know there is some stuff floating in there)..so I hope the other person comes up with one…otherwise there is the dreaded silence…
Anyway…it’s good to get those things out. anyone want to comment on how they feel?
