Let's see if I understood you well. In conversations, you don't reveal that much about yourself compared to the person you're talking to. It sounds like you tend to ask questions, listen but refrain from expressing your own thoughts about their views on topics.

I would suggest to take the risk of expressing your opinions or general thoughts on topics. Yes I know, "but that person may criticize me for it! It would be terrible if she did and I wouldn't cope with it!" But how do you know if that is true? How about you create a behavioral experiment to test it out? When in a conversation with your peers, express your honest opinion or thought on a topic (doesn't have to be about politics or religion...in fact, stay away from those topics!!!). Afterward, write down the facts and then write your new belief that you learn from that experiment. Then repeat!
