    in groups bigger than about 5, i get really nervous and scared about talking in case someone thinks im a complete ****. Our biology teacher made me do a presentation in front of our class (18 people) and i froze and nearly cried!

    Imagine that everybody is naked.

    Tell them that they are all naked.

    Boss levels are maxed. Anxiety no longer exists.


    Anyways a real method would be to distract yourself. Is the presentation important? Why? Im usually going through philosophical and contradictory questions in my head all day. This makes me appear laid back and calm when in face im probably facing the highest amounts of social anxiety. These questions usually turn into anger and distract me from the presentation though so stay balanced and neutral. Phase in and out of presentations. Likes the highs and lows of music. The echoing calm of ocean waves . Be free from anxiety.

    or hate it forever like some stubborn old fool like me.

    try and get used to talking in front of people, offer answers in class and read your work out etc
