Walking into a room with people watching me or people walking in behind me, is still be my biggest challenge. Walking in the street with people behind me is also my biggest challenge.
Clamming up also when we’re trying to talk to someone might be hard for us, easy for others. But I still believe that for us to overcome what scares us, we must put ourselves in that scary place. It sounds crazy that we would force ourselves into doing the very thing we know we might be scared by, but not to means we will never overcome fear.
Feeling inhibited, struggling to understand our feelings will always slow us down from being creative, from our passion. But to do that we must overcome our fear and deal with one scary thing at a time. That scary thing doesn’t have to be anything big.
But it’s important we put ourselves into that scary place, rather than avoid it. Thinking about doing something, is scarier than the action itself. Sadly, apprehension is stressful as are the feelings that accompany it.
