    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Hate It

    It doesn't matter how many people are around, I still hate to be the centre of attention. I hate doing presentations or speaking out in a group. It causes me some problems because I hate being the centre of attention even when there is only one other person there. This prevents...
