Have you ever felt unsure of yourself? Unsure of how to back yourself up or defend your own thought process? Have you ever second-guessed your own opinion? Have you ever been so flustered or caught up with emotion that when you tried to make a point it didn’t really make sense?
I know it may seem like I’m perfect, but I get really flustered when I debate with people in real life (opposed to blog-life). I try to stay away from debates and confrontation all together, but sometimes my mouth says things before my brain can say “No wait! Don’t say that!” (Blogging is totally different though. I’ll say things to annoy people just because I find it HI-larious)
Some people are so eloquent the way they express themselves or take part in conversations. For the most part I find that I am relatively normal, but sometimes I feel like I can’t get my point across as well as other people can. I could totally relate to Miss South Carolina in the Miss Teen USA competition in 2007. I would’ve had a similar answer to hers. I can’t actually think of a good answer to the question she was asked even though I’ve had 5 years to ponder it. I’m surprised I haven’t answered any comments with simply, “Such as the Iraq and such as.”
I feel for this girl, I really do. During the spring I was asked to give a talk in my church. I was so nervous to speak in front of a crowd– everyone lingering on my words. Of course
I my mom had written out what I was going to say word for word, but I was still scared. Before I stood up to give my talk, I kept telling myself I love public speaking. I love standing in front of people. I love it, I really do. I really didn’t. But I got it over with and felt good afterwards. I couldn’t imagine being asked a question in front of an audience, not knowing what to say next.
I honestly don’t even know what I’m talking about anymore. Most of my posts tend to do this, if you haven’t noticed. I’ll start talking about one thing and then end up on a totally different subject that doesn’t even apply to the title of my post.
