Hard to talk to people

I think I can be so talkative to my siblings and people Im really really comfortable with but with most people even though we're friends or I've known them for the longest time, I feel really shy, I always ask myself if they hate me or things like that. I shift from friend group to friend group because one small response or look would bother me so much into thinking that they hate me. It's so hard to build a relationship when Im too shy with people. I used to be confident, talkative and had many friends but now i get so embarrass so easily.

hiya im exactly the same-i actually say to my aunt 'please try not to have a facial expression when i talk to you'
because i read something into every little look and expression people give and i often get it wrong
i actually find it easier to talk on the phone and internet than in person

What happened do you think that caused you to go from being confident to being shy and easily embarrassed?
