You are probably better at playing fast, premoving, flagging than at thinking.

I’ve heard that blitz have stronger players that play than the other time periods…. That could be wrong but that’s what I have heard

You cannot play blitz like bullet or like rapid.
If you really want to get better at blitz, then play that exclusively,
so as to get a feel for time: not too fast and shallow, not too deep and slow.

Blitz is a mix between bullet and rapid

You have to be able to play fast (like in bullet ) and think well(like in rapid ) so a mix of bullet and rapid can actually be helpful for blitz as long as you play primarily blitz chess

You probably just have to get used to playing blitz, the timing and all. Not a big deal you'll manage.
I am wondering about something else. I play some daily club games now, just for fun... And some of my opponents current or previous ones have some extraordinary differences in their ratings. I've seen an active rapid player of 650 rating having 1550 daily rating and I've seen a guy of 1100 rapid rating having 2100 daily rating. Now try to make sense out of that!

blitz is wayy better if you are too impatient for rapid but too slow for bullet
