Hello! This is my first time posting here, but I've been a lurker for a few months.

I am currently 17 years old, definitely on the younger side on this sub. I'm not necessarily here because I'm searching for a boyfriend, but to improve myself. This summer I found myself here and realized that I was the embodiment of a tumblr feminist, because I was one. Overweight, loud, and an absolute bitch to men. A lot of the things here made sense and I decided to try and convert to RP.

I lost 17 pounds in the past 30 days, bit my tongue when I felt like complaining or nagging my father and brothers, started cleaning up around the house, and made an effort into learning how to cook. The atmosphere at home is definitely much more welcoming and relaxing, though sometimes I do forget and I do mess up (which is increasingly more rare now). I'm more soft spoken and talk less shit than I used to, which leads to my current issue. I'm used to talking shit in every conversation I have/make that now, when I am trying to maintain one, I have no idea what to say, and it makes me feel ashamed and embarrassed. My friends (who are not on the radical feminist boat and support me) have observed that not only am I more pleasant, I am also significantly quieter and much more shy, even with them. What do you ladies talk about or do when you're having a mental block during a conversation? Especially without being considered a "bore?"

Edit: I don't really know how to reply to each of you without getting redundant but thank you ladies so much! I'll definitely be taking each and every piece of advice you guys offer (: ❤
