I often feel stupid or silly when I act like myself around others, even close friends. I crave social interaction, but I usually stress out about every little thing and worry that people won't like me. In the end, I think I'm so reserved due to a fear of be perceived negatively, that I am seen as boring. In fact, I am becoming boring. I don't know what to say or what I can talk about. I just want to laugh and get a long with people, but can barely make myself respond to things others say much less come up with something on my own to keep the conversation rolling. Anyone else who can relate to this, please give advice.
