Overworked about what to say
(Bellevue, WA, US)
Hi, My name's John and I'm a 16 year old guy. Recently (in the past year or so), I've been kind of upset because I've had trouble having conversations. I start thinking about the specifics of talking and it makes it hard to say anything without overthinking it. And when I overthink it it starts to become harder for me to even have a normal conversations. Sometimes I'm completely fine but then other days I can't help but thinking about thinking of the right thing to say (which I seem to not be able to do a lot) and in the end I feel really stupid, like I can't form a conversation while other people do it just fine.
I'm wondering if maybe it just has to do with me being a teenager and all with all the hormones and whatnot, because like I said, some days I'm completely fine and hold conversations just fine. It seems to be especially bad when I'm with just another person and I feel like I need to constantly hold a conversation.
Any advice would be really nice and much appreciated!
