    I don't have the language yet to face the conversation

    In the following sentence, I can understand the meaning of "I don't have the language yet to face the conversation", but yet could you please paraphrase the mentioned sentence? I am translating this book, and I need to choose the closest equivalents.
    Thanks.

    "But some days he doesn't talk about work, and on those days, even sitting on the other side of the door to him is a struggle. There is so much Sebastian and I need to discuss, and somehow, I don't have the language yet to face the conversation."

    Re: I don't have the language yet to face the conversation

    Very longwindedly:I don't know yet how to express in words the thoughts (I need to convey); as a result of this, I am not yet brave/prepared enough to initiate the onversation.
