Dreams of fear of public speaking

by tryingtothinkofsomething

Last night I had a dream about fear of public speaking. I was in a class that I was about to drop because there was an upcoming 30 second presentation due and I was afraid to get up in front of the class and speak.

This reflects strongly on my actual college career. I ended up dropping many classes for the same reason. Some classes I’d avoid all together if I knew that they involved public speaking or a large amount of social interaction such as working with other students in groups.

I really want to overcome this part of my life that fears speaking in front of others. Perhaps it’s fear of scrutiny. At other times, I’m not sure if it’s fear at all or if it’s just a loss for words.
