Superhero Strength Here

Friday, October 31, 2014

I have had many obstacles thrown my way in life, just like everyone else, I imagine. I am very shy (it runs on both sides of my family) and 99% of the time choose to withdraw from anything that might call attention to me. Throughout school I would crack when assigned to speak. I would either stutter uncontrollably or start laughing and not be able to stop. Really serious problems! I recently was offered an opportunity to volunteer for a cause I believe in as a speaker. I am worried that I will start to stutter, stammer or freeze (I doubt I will laugh because this is a serious cause) but I have gathered up my superhero strength to do this!!!

    emoticon on facing your 'fear' of speaking in public.....Could you maybe practice in front of family or friends before you go out there and speak? I am positive that you will do great. emoticon

    I'm sure you'll do fine. If Dena can make a presentation with only a few weeks of preparation, I know you can, too. Just be as prepared as possible and you'll be fine.

    And when you get through this, you'll be so proud of yourself!
