I find this really difficult, does anyone else?

Even if i try to maintain eye contact when forcing myself to talk to people i am sooo uncomfortable and cant concentrate on what the person is even saying.

I just want this to go away. :redface:

ive got the same problem, it usually gets better when i get to know the person abit better, sounds like your really self concious its not that bigger deal id focus more on what your saying to people, theres ways to work around it.
