I've never been the sort to easily relax and talk about myself and no better a test to that is when I try talking with my mental health counselor. Most of our sessions revolve around me sitting and fidgeting in awkward silence as she tries to pry me open with sparse and often repetitive questions I can never quite come to fully answer. I just can't get comfortable enough to think of what I want to say or form the words with my mouth. I feel like even though I'm paying her to essentially listen to my troubles I'm still a bother for saying what I want and in the end it will all sound too stupid to have made such a big fuss about in the first place.
Is there any advice people might have to help me open up more and be more vocal?
