DEAR DEIDRE: I DON’T feel very confident and get nervous or stutter when I speak to my boss or work colleagues.
I’m an 18-year-old guy and I wish I didn’t feel so anxious every day.
Whenever there’s a silence, I feel the need to fill it and end up talking rubbish.

I’m always rushing around because if I’m not busy, it makes me overthink.
How can I learn to switch off?
DEIDRE SAYS: Try to breathe slowly and calm down.
It sounds like never stopping is an avoidance tactic – it means you ignore your worries and avoid dealing with the present.
My support pack on Shyness And Social Anxiety might be of help.
