Unhappy Having trouble talking. - July 22nd 2009, 12:23 AM

I'm not sure if this is where this post belongs....

When I was little I was so shy that whenever anyone but my mom would talk to me, I would cry.
Unfortunately for me, over the last 15 or 16 years, or however long I've known how to talk, it hasn't gotten much better.
I mean, the range of people I can talk to has gotten much bigger, and verbal contact no longer makes me cry, but it's still really hard for me.
I can talk to people I see every day, like teachers and some kids at school, but I never know what to say, so conversations tend to die quickly.
I have a few close friends who I can talk to about anything, but that's only like, 3 people.
So how can I learn to be more social? I just feel so uncomfortable talking to people I don't know extremely well, like my mom or my best friends.

I know how you feel. I was kinda like that and I still kinda am. Have you considered talking to your mom about getting you a therapist or something?

I have the same problem as you, I can barely talk to anyone. I think the only way is to put yourself in social situations? Like sports clubs, drama clubs etc. Maybe try speaking out in class?

I can relate, truly :c
As hard as it sounds, you just need to try your hardest. Find people into the same thing as you (ex. if you like painting, join an art club or class.), finding topics your passionate about make it a little easier to talk about with others, especially if they get it. I couldn't go past a simple hello not too long ago...but I just forced myself to speak past a "How are you? Great. Hi!" or "Nice to meet you". It was hard, and you'll question yourself, but hopefully it gets better. I'm still a very shy person, but it's better than antisocial, like I was..
Have you seen anyone for this? Maybe a therapist can help you?
I wish you luck with this! I'm sure it'll get better, especially since it already has a bit.

Help my little eggiweggs! =D Prease?

i support what everyone else has said and

you have to know one thing: sometimes its all in your head. if you can overcome all that, and know the fact that everyone's in fact on the same level.. you will not be uncomfortable , and you'll be able to talk to anyone. the most important thing you have to remember is that it takes a lot of guts to try, but i believe you have that..

remember that over here, we all are friends. anything, and everything you wanna tell to someone, you can tell it to us

Those who have went through more pain than everyone else, and want to protect anyone and everyone they know and care for from that pain, are stronger than everyone.

we come, we help, we stick and never leave. pm me anytimeee!
