dont worry i can have conversations with people while doing something like walking bt when it comes to cafes when i see there is water on the table i drink frequently to avoid the awkward silences and overall just get uncomfortable.

can you guys please give me advice

it’s ok to be uncomfortable, but if you are avoiding silence which is natural i have a couple tips. when it is silent tell yourself
,” it’s quiet, quiet is NOT bad,” next make sure you do not try to fill quietness with lies because lying isn’t better than silence. Lastly get a small putty to put in your pocket, keep it on you at all times, it gives you something to healthily fight with instead of drinking or something else. hope this helped.
