Idk how to respond to people when they talk and its a big problem
Can you pinpoint certain things that make you just go silent and not respond. And things that you can respond to and talk about like the weather pr something?
Sorry to hear that, I also have this issue makes me feel stupid and like the other person thinks im not interested.
Have you heard of selective mutism? People thought I couldn’t talk because of it.
I used to have really bad social anxiety and found it hard to talk to people. I then would catastrophize about what I said thinking it make me look dumb.
I just dont know at all how to respond to the things people say in a conversation. Idk how to describe it. Like pretty much cant repond more than a word or two or none
Thats what im afriad of that i looks like i dont care
I also have this problem in certain situations. Mostly in situations where people are talking about life in their lives in their homes and families and children jobs and things I really don’t have.The biggest problem I have is when somebody asked me so what do you do.
I have a similar thing. I cant speak for more than a sentence or maybe 2 at a time. And i usually need a few moments to put my thoughts together before i speak otherwise it will come out as gibberish. Causes heaps of social anxiety.
Same here. Sometimes i would not know what to talk. I feel like I am running out of topics. I would be dumbstruck. Hardest thing is to be on point.
