People Make Me Nervous
Ever since I can remember I have been nervous around other people. I think a lot of it has to do with my dad's mental and physical abuse as a child. He pretty much destroyed my self esteem. I have absolutely no confidence in myself at all. I don't like meeting people I don't know because I don't know what to say to them. I have lost job opportunities because I get extremely nervous in interviews. I know the right things to say, but when they start asking questions my mind seems to go blank. I hate talking on the phone because I am horrible at trying to find the right way to end the conversation. I am actually this way in person too. I hate this about myself! I hate myself for being like this!
