I am starting uni in October and I am worried. I am quite friendly and really want to make friends, but I find talking to new people very stressful. When I talk to new people, I overanalyse everything I say and get angry at myself for seeming weird (even if the conversation is quite normal). Talking over the internet is even worse; being unable to see the response of the other person I worry even more that they think I am an idiot.
Anybody got any advice on how I can meet and talk to new people whilst distracting myself from my anxieties?
