Does anyone else here have trouble explaining there thoughts or feelings?
I have some serious trouble with this. For example:
I cant explain what Im trying to ask in this thread more than I already did.
Am I joking?
No.
I seriously cant.
Could It be my lack of vocabulary? Cuz I dont know a whole lot of words. At least I think I dont.......I dont know.
This is bugging the hell out of me.

I have problems explaining feelings, and in general, explaining anything. As part of my job I sometimes have to give people in other departments a quick presentation of what I do in my office, I do this job every day and it's so easy, yet explaining is a disaster every time.

I'm always like this everytime I'm infront of someone I like freeze up and can't say what I want to get out,it really affects me especially at job interviews etc.It's like I have everything I want to say worked out but my brain stops working as soon as I'm if front of anyone,and it's bloody annoying.:)
p.s I'm new here hope you can understand my style of writing.

yeh I have problems with this too. I can know I want to say something but soon as I speak I dont know how to get to what I was thinking. Then I start stuttering then more time passes more pressure to say something builds up, now im put on the spot and I cant think straight. In the end ill end up saying something completely different and replay how I should of said it in my head.

Yes I know how you feel. I struggle to word things right especially when I'm nervous. I do find that the more I do it the better it gets , so don't feel alone and hopeless buddy.

I have extreme trouble in explaining my feelings.. I feel like no matter what words I use, the person I'm trying to explain it to won't understand it in the way I'm telling them.

My son is this way bigtime. He can talk about sports, etc., but he absolutely hates talking about his feelings or his own SA.

I suffer from this as well. Like, when I'm at work and a customer asks for the ingredients of a certain cake or bread, it takes me 50 words to explain something that could be explained with 15. I think it has to do something with me being more worried of the customer judging me than me giving a proper explanation.

I've always sucked at explaining but I guess it's part of SA since many people here seem to have that problem. I was talking with a girl recently (we are both interested in each other) and I was explaining that I am shy and passive to other people's decisions. I was trying to explain why but it was hard to explain. For me, when I feel emotions, I don't really go through step by step why I feel a certain way. Emotions just come and fill my thoughts.

Lots of people have this problem. I used to have alot of trouble.
You have to communicated with different people.
Sometimes when I don't talk to people for a long period of time, I tend to stutter and forget what I'm about to say.
1 - brush up on your vocab every once in a while, try learning new words as well

* 2 - think about what you say BEFORE you say.
Aka think before you speak, thats a must in society.

3 - don't be stressed out. forget about all that stress , sing a little tune or song in your head when you're walking around a store, eases your mind.

I promise after a while you'll learn to speak comfortably.
