I've always been that way, but I don't have friends anymore. I've evolved into this depressive, bitter, angry, and lonely person.

As if I'm reading a story about me, I'm really like you, used to so talkative person but now so shy person, I really want to be that brave and confidence person I used to be.

I used to be like that till high school. My life went down hill from there as well and horrible things happened one after the other which led me to be quiet and over thinking each situation.

Try to grow confidence in yourself. I am not sure what happened to you but believe that being yourself is always better and will attract people who like you. Say what you want, as long as it doesn't hurt people. Talk to total strangers as you used to as that shows your brave and confident.

If you feel you cannot do it, do explain your reasons to me either here or in private, whatever is more comfortable.
