It’s a funny thing, anxiety. I don’t have a problem speaking in public, but for some reason the time leading up to it is always a little nerve-racking.
My heart starts to race a little, I don’t really know what it is. Maybe it’s the fear forgetting something, maybe it’s the fear of thinking that you’re going to sound like an idiot. I’m not really sure what it is. All I know is that I can’t shake it, because it is the funniest thing. It could even be, that I’m actually afraid to screw up, then I’ll forget something.
As soon as I get in front of people, the anxiety goes away. It just goes away and I’m able to speak. I make sense, I speak fluidly, and people actually like it. They think I know what I’m talking about.
The real solution to this problem, other than the fact that I can talk about it. I’m sure someone can tell me as soon as I publish this, that the best way to get over this is to keep doing it. They may even say, practice makes perfect.
And that it does.
