I am an ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE public speaker. I have gone to great lengths to avoid having to make speeches etc. It rips my nerves to shreds. I wish I was good at as you all seem to be - its definitely a great skill to have.
What I really hate are people that are really good at it telling me to "just get up and do it" or "its not that bad" or "stop overreacting" :steam: . Its as if they're telling me its just a matter of putting my mind to it and I'm just a pathetic complainer making a scene out of nothing. There's nothing worse than someone who is naturally good at something criticizing and belittling others for not being good at it.
