Oh yes, I have felt less. :) In my early 20s I was extremely shy, and in fact sometimes I might go with a friend to visit a group of new people and I would sit unable to utter one word, until finally so much time had passed that the pressure would be unbearable and I would say a couple of words! Seriously.
It’s because you’re thinking too much. Do you ever get out in nature? Ever get up at first light? Try to postpone your first thought.
I like conversing on those pages. I kind of like the fact that they’re public although no one else is there, and may never come, at this rate! It’s the most fun I’ve ever had on Help actually, and not only that but the topic(s) are really right up my alley. For some reason “being alone” has not been a popular topic here.
