Sometimes when I am anxious I will start chattering nervously away. This is good advice because you don't have to go over and over in your head what you might have said wrong or how you sounded to that person. :)
Reminds me of what my best friend told my husband..."be careful, I've known her a long time. She wont fight, she will just leave without a word if you push her away" I think she might just know me better than anyone ever.
