I Hate Being the Centre of Attention

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 245 People

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
