Nervousness is normal and affects most of us in are speeches. If you are feeling nervous then you are speaking to people that have some sort of importance to you and you care about what they think of your speech, this is one reason most of us are nervous to speak. Being nervous is very normal and happens to even some of the best speakers like Abraham Lincoln, Margaret Sanger, and Winston Churchill.

Nervousness is something that mostly needs you to be impressing someone not too often is anyone nervous about something that is for only them and no one would notice. There are a lot of things that are really easy but thinking about it too much makes it feel harder and more important. There are a lot of hard things in life to be nervous or scared of but talking in front of people is just a small thing that everyone will have to do once in there life.

    I agree with your comment on nervousness and how people think that it is so bad to talk in front of people when there are several other things in this world that will eventually make you more nervous then giving a speech.

    People do become very nervous. However, over the course of this class I think we all became much more comfortable with everything that was handed to us!

    Oh Jared, I just have to comment on you because you made me giggle so much. Your aloof personality was always entertaining. I’m just saying, glad you were part of my class 🙂
