I still struggle really bad with talking to people but the good thing is that i am definately noticing progress. i am finding that i can talk to people who want to talk but also who listen too. but i can't talk to people who only want to listen or who only want to talk. i'm still horrible in situations involving more than 2 people. if i can evaluate myself i would say the areas i still need to work on in holding conversations is being more confident and talking louder and also just coming up with things to talk about. thats probably the toughest one. how do you come up with things to talk about. i tried the writing thing beforehand but its hard to write things that i think i will talk about for some reason. so how can i get better at these things that i feel are still holding me back and take talking to the next level?
