Street photography problem

Hi!

I have a small problem. I always wanted be a photographer. What it means for me "to take decent pictures with story, not just push the button and that's it".
I never have idea for myself what kind of photography would be good for me. And recently I have just discovered YT channel with perfect stuff for me. It was street photography in style which I loved.It is full of fun, patterns, contrasts, perfect spotted moments etc.And is really inspiring for me, but when Im out with my camera I have nothing to shot or probably I dont see good things to shot, those contrasts, patterns etc. And then is realy demotivating me...
Maybe I need to go to busy place like London? But Im not sure if it changes that I will suddenly notice above things.
And my second problem is Im not feeling confident close to people. I have 2 main lens 17mm (35 FF) and 42.5mm (85mm) And 17 is too wide for me, because I need to come a bit too close, 42.5mm is of course to tight. Do you thin 20mm or 25 will change something for me?
I will be really grateful for any advice! Somehow I know this is something for me, but I need to find my way / style. That is why Im asking more experienced photographers.
