    My birthday reminded me of this.

    I feel so awkward when I'm given attention, like I don't want it.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    I hate that when someone is lying to me, I can tell... sometimes I don't want to know. That is part of what makes speaking online easier, you don't see every little lie.
