How do you prepare yourself when you have to do something that you don't feel ready for, or you are afraid? However, some things can't be delayed. There are days when I face people with confidence, when I feel strong. But sometimes I feel not ready to confront some situations, people. Should I just take a deep breath and step inside? I try to imagine what some other person would do in my place. Usually that person is someone I admire, for different reasons. If I could, I would look at the world through theirs eyes. Sometimes it helps.
The picture we have about ourselves may be different than what the other think of us. For many years I tried to fight my nature and be more extrovert, communicative..At the early age I was punished by my primary teacher for being too shy. She said she will never give me the best grade even if I'll deserve it sometimes. And it was like that for the next 4 years. Some traces of my shy nature can't be deleted or changed, but instead of fighting against it maybe it's better to embrace who we are.
