    Never Have Liked It

    I don't like being the center of attention. Sometimes its not avoidable, courses must be straightened or as manager "riots" must be quelled. Most of the time it is easy to be a wallflower and sit back and just do what I need to do. I am quite happy that way...

    So Much So!

    I am cursed with being a very interesting person, so I often find myself in the spotlight. But it bothers me to no end! I feel like I have to "perform" in some way, when all eyes are on me. And plus, since I'm battling social anxiety, this kind of attention makes me a...

    Best Man

    So I have a buddy of mine that I used to work with and was really close with. I knew that he was getting married with in a year or so. He dropped a few hints here and there such as what are you doing on this date. Red flags start showing up in my head at this point, but...

    I Always Have..

    I remember when I was a kid my dad was playing in a band.  He dedicated a song to me. A spotlight was put on me. I paniced and ran away sobbing. I considered taking piano lessons like my brother. One day, I think I was around the age of 6 or so I sat at the piano and...

    Paranoid

    I get really paranoid, like I have something stuck in my teeth or toothpaste on my face or something if I'm the centre of attention. It makes me sweat really bad, I can feel my whole head getting hot and itchy - feels like it's going to explode or something, then I rush my words...

    Centre Of Attention

    One thing I dislike is being the centre of attention.  If it happens it happens, it is out of my control. At school, I hated giving an oral speech in front of the class. On my wedding day, I wasn't crazy about the fact getting all the attention but I had to go...

    Why Me

    All through school and on the job when I worked some how I would end up being the one out front or leading. I never asked for this and really never wanted it.  But somehow it always ended up this way.  I liked helping and being part of things but did not want to be in...

    I enjoy being alone. I am able to entertain myself in ways I can't when I'm around others. But I hate being lonely and left or forgotten. That causes a person to be lonely.

    As caretakers we feel that love and attention can fix anything but sometimes that's not true. I would try therapy if you really want to try to keep things together.
