Hey guys, I've started this pick up thing about 3 months ago and I'm starting to see patterns in the way I operate emotionally. And it's weird being so self-conscious of how I feel. At the same time, I'm clear of what my emotions are but I cant deal with them very well.
From time to time I would do pretty well and bring value to my groups. I would make everyone laugh and I feel like Im on the ball but many times I wouldnt feel like doing shit. Then I start to take energy away from the people and I can't stop myself nor can I change the situation.
For example, these 2 girls sitting behind me tried to open me by saying hi but I couldnt say much back other than 'hi, did you study for the quiz' which. I know is the worst line to use but I couldnt think of anything better. Its not a surprise that the convo died really fast and I stopped talking.
Is this an inner game issue? I was doing so well before the break and now Im just flunking everything. Why is this happening and what would you do if you were in my shoes?
