Stop talking completely to people

Is it normal for me to be terrified of talking to people I try really hard and I can talk just fine to family but as soon as other people come I freeze and I can’t speak because my thoughts gets loud each time saying how my voice is annoying to them I hide in my room now when my brother brings people over . It feels like they judge at me when they look at me. I don’t know what to do

  • I understand; and this is not going to be easy.

    But, you will do much better in life, earn more money, etc. if you learn how to talk to other people.

    It's also possible that there are other issues involved here as well. You may need to talk to some kind of counselor about that. The right information and exercises can do wonders.

    For learning how to talk to people I recommend 3 books:

    The updated classic is: "How to Win Friends & Influence People in the Digital Age" by: Dale Carnegie and associates.

    But, for something that is very short and to the point there are 2 pamphlet size books that are very good. While they share some similarities they each explain different things:

    "Skill with People" by Les Giblin

    "The Art of Dealing With People" by Les Giblin

    I wish you the best with this.... I believe in you,

  • Don't talk to other people. It'll help you in the long run.

  • You could probably benefit from cognitive behavioral therapy. One good thing you could also try doing is getting outside your comfort zone just 1 time a day. Tell some random person you like their shoes or something like that just go talk to someone
