Dealing with people


I don' t know what to do anymore. I don' t know how to talk and be comfortable around new people. The more confident other people are and the more talkative other people are the more quiet I get. I always think and think and think about what to say, but I have nothing to say. And when I have something to say I' m too shy to say it or too afraid that everybody' s attention will be on me. I wish I was like other people with a big mouth, talking to all kinds of people and feeling no fear of being disliked. How can I be comfortable around any kind of person?

I' m the same Meme. I wish I was normal. I must be the most boring person in the world, because I' m painfully shy and reserved. :(
