I get a sense of pleasure when guys tell me I scare the shit out of them because they can never read me and I’m unpredictable. >:)
I’m in that boat right now! Thank you very much. I think it might help to hold onto the back of an earring or gently press your nails into your palms when you’re talking. I will try this when I have to present my final projects. I keep telling myself, Girl, you will have to present in college—get yourself together!! Best of luck to you!
It’s my senior year of high school, why is it so stressful!?
I was in the same exact boat as you… and still am in my classes. I’m glad you were able to overcome the problem and had the support to have done so!
I’m the type of person who can be outgoing and obnoxious, but when it comes to presenting or talking or lecturing or sharing my ideas with people for class discussions, etc, I literally shake and I can’t breathe and my voice and breath catch… I could be in front of the same people I was just obnoxious with moments ago. UGH. Is anyone else’s coping strategy putting yourself in the mindset of someone else—say, a socially facilitated person—when in this situation?
