Hope For The Best

Since  I could remember I have always been afraid to speak in front of people even if I know them. I don’t know why I get so nervous but it just feels like I’m sweating like a pig and everyone is just staring at me when I get in front of the class. When I realized I needed to take speech I was frightened. I was thinking that as soon as I get into this class the teacher is going to make me get in front of the class the first day and talk to people. But my thinking was very wrong.

Our instructor allowed us to stay in our seats and just introduce ourselves to the class and then she had a group  go to the front of the room, which allows me to think that the attention isn’t all on me. Even though it wasn’t that hard to get in front of the class with others, I do believe it will be a whole other rollercoaster ride doing my own speech in front of the class. I have changed my view about this class being a heart attack to me but is still gives me the nervousness when I get in front of people. It was kind of relaxing to hear that I wasn’t the only one scared to speak in front of a crowd. I hope by the end of this quarter I learn confidence and to turn my stage fright into “stage excitement”!!

Skills For Life I’m almost over my fear of giving a speech.
