Social anxiety

It’s in the amount of attention that I pay to criticism,

In the rate at which negative comments sink in,

Just the thought of voicing my thoughts in a group gets my heart racing,

It’s in how much I worry about what the next person is gonna think or say,

Just hearing those things feels like a bee’s sting,

It lies in the fear of speaking my mind even though I know that it is right,

The power I render to my pen and paper….

It’s like I could write about anything at all that I wish I could share confidently,

I want it to go away so bad,

I want my heart to keep beating normally anytime I think of saying something in a group,

I want my hands to stop sweating and shaking the way they do,

I want that fear to stop raging in my gut,

I wanna speak my mind without giving a damn about what the next person is gonna say or think…

God knows I try so hard not to have an emotional reaction to everything being said about me,

All I want is to stop being sensitive to nay sayers.

  1. I used to worry about what other people thought about me but as I got older, not so much. It’s a difficult challenge to face, especially when one is lacking confidence. Thank you for following BrewNSpew. 😉

  8. Thanks for the thoughts you are revealing on this web site. Another thing I’d really like to say is getting hold of copies of your credit rating in order to scrutinize accuracy of the detail is the first action you have to accomplish in repairing credit. You are looking to cleanse your credit history from dangerous details problems that spoil your credit score.
