It's great that you are able to be confident when practicing talking to people at home, that means it is totally within you to be able to eventually do it in real life! Unfortunately, at the moment, the worry and pressure of using these brilliant conversation skills in reality seems to be stimulating your Limbic system (fight, flight) and that stops us accessing the intelligent, witty side of the brain. Keep practicing and imagining yourself conversing positively with others, keep that side of your mind active and someday, as your life changes and anxiety begins to ease, you will can put it all to good use.

Pushing cars up hill is no fun, letting them roll down the other side though is epic!

Feel as good as you can feel today
