Wow!!! I wonder how you define Stupid. I never feel stupid but I always feel misrepresented.You are not alone, my friend. I have a problem with this too. It makes me feel stupid, not because I have nothing to say, but because I just can't say a thing. People talk, I keep my mouth shut, occasionally smile or say something. This is especially frustrating when I know the person wants to talk and,like u said...my mind goes blank. Sometimes I can't even understand what they are saying. It's like... there is a fear or something that I might say something wrong so I just keep quiet. When it comes to talking online...I turn into a very talkative and eloquent person...my mind finally wakes up and people realize I do have something smart to say. I think it's about self-esteem and the way to change this is to work on accepting who we are and show it. :happy:
that you in your avatar? If so, I too rock the bandana...in fact, at this one party with a group of close friends I busted it out when i was drunk and, ever since, they too have adopted the style.I get quiet in social situations even though i am feeling great. I dont come up with anything to say in parties. My mind goes completely blank.
yeeeepI call this my "freezing up moment" because that's exactly what it feels like
sometimes I might want to say something but I just can't say it and freeze
up for no reason. It's pretty frustrating.
i hate when this happens in time when you almost should say soemtihng you can't, and i jsut end up saying some generic phrase and wishing i said something moreyeeeep
a big house party is a prime example of a place where freeze up moments are a 99% chance of happening...I'll be in the middle of the party all quiet and trying to figure out how to blend in. The next minute I'll head over to the bathroom cuz I gotta take a piss. While in the bathroom I'm thinking to myself "man, I don't wanna go back out there wtf what's wrong with me?"
