when I haven’t been around people for a while and when I am nervous. I am pretty much always nervous and will talk sometimes out of sheer nervousness. I am going to set myself a certain number of words I can say and plan things out before I say (responding in a quick manner to questions asked is still okay. Maybe that will help me be calmer.

I am an introvert and I spend a lot of time on my own, but I still think, after watching people for a lot of my life, that we are bombarded by noise and “talk” (much of it seems to have no purpose or meaning either). I want to get into the habit of talking only when I really need to say something, and even then, keeping it short and to the point.
