In this show I talk about how small talk makes me terribly uncomfortable. It’s not like I do it on purpose and it’s not like I try to brush people off, it’s simply who I am.
I don’t think there’s anything wrong with small talk, all I am saying is it’s not for everyone.
I also talk about a friendly young gentlemen changed my entire day with his small talk, which actually made me rethink my almost anxiety towards it.
I don’t exactly have anxiety toward small talk, I simply feel that’s the way I am. I feel like I’m an introvert at the best of times which there certainly isn’t anything wrong with, but I also feel that many people think I’m blowing them off or ignoring them because I don’t stop and talk. The truth is I rarely know what to say, don’t know when to say good bye, how long to talk for or how it exactly works, so that’s why I avoid small talk as much as possible.
