When I am in a group of people,
I think of something to say
And then I think about whether it is okay to say so
And then I overthink
And by the time I come up with a perfect response,
The topic has already changed And everyone has left.
End of the story.
P.S – Then after many such instances, you realise you don’t even come up with many things/ideas to say now, coz now your brain knows you don’t speak up.
