The idea of public speaking scares the hell out of me. When I was younger I joined the Toastmasters to help me gain self confidence. Speaking in front of the group was scary but also gave me a sort of rush. LOL ! I guess one could compare it to the rush people get from doing dangerous sports….
Sometimes in a class or small group I can really get into talking about an idea or issue and that I actually (sort of) enjoy; although it hasn’t happened in a good while….
