Oh yes, a rock does much better than I do.
I am very bad at communication. I don't seem to get it right with everyone.
You are not alone. I don't any friends to hang out with and no boyfriends for the past 5 years. I think I've pretty much isolated myself. It's hard esp. when I'm planning to have a job that requires good communication skills. I don't know what to do now......
Yeah definitely feel that way, but I always say the wrong things the wrong time if I do speak. At least a rock is quiet.
A moldy rock, at that.
i answer from work perspective:
Always. but then when i get to be in the workplace longer, interact with the same people more, especially the bosses, over time i relax and talk just a bit more. eventually i do not stress myself out too much by not being talkative and sociable like other people.
that is, until a new boss or colleagues come along - and the cycle begins again :-)
what do you want to say?
well... if you want to have more time to think of something to say, one idea is just to say, "Let me think about it for a minute, can you give me a moment?" And you can kinda practice it a little before hand. That way it will remove a little of the stress of having to respond right away. :)
