365 Writing Prompts: Naked with black socks

Are you comfortable in front of people ,or does the idea of public speaking make you want to hide in the bathroom? Why?

Public speaking or not I am a bit jittery when I have to speak in front of a gathering. After the initial five minutes I feel okay.

I won’t admit I love speaking in public, however I can if I have to. Someone once remarked, ” you are a teacher how can you be nervous in front of a public?”

My reply was,”I do not have trouble teaching, but it’s different from public speaking, here I have a group of kids whom I see every day, a friendship develops and the fear factor is removed.

This is a kind of fear, where I feel I may not be able to do a good job, it makes me nervous.

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for this post about public speaking. It’s odd, isn’t it, how life evolves. As a boy and young man, I was painfully shy. But then, at some point, that evaporated. Now, I routinely speak in front of audiences of 50 – 100 people. And…it’s my most enjoyable part of my job :).

    All good wishes,

    robert
