Had an email, from someone very kindly asking if I will consider attending a mental health awareness and phone line campaign fundraiser. To share my story as inspiration to others.
It is in the UK, so I can’t…but even if was local – I would currently still have to decline.
I have a huge fear of public speaking! I got married abroad twice – to avoid everyone looking at me! It really is that bad!
My anxiety shoots up just thinking about public speaking. Although, there have been a few times I have had to do it, and I actually did it okay. But, other times I have vomited before hand.
I realise I have powerful message/story to share and if able to do public speaking, it would potentially help more people. I know my capacity to have humour and laugh at myself, would be an added bonus, as people like a little humour in public speaking, even if about something serious.
It makes me wonder if in the future, I should consider a public speaking course, like toastmaster, and get over my fear.
Right now, I know I need to just concentrate on myself and my healing and I do enough via the internet.
But, it is something to keep in mind for the future…
