Guys I need help with this…

okay so anyone else got public anxiety, I don’t know if that’s even a thing?
- but I feel like I can’t stand up and do anything / read out loud / in front of people.
- I can answer questions and don’t mind getting picked on.

- but when it comes to doing a power point for the class even in groups - or ESPECIALLY reading out loud to the class, I just can’t do it.

- I get all emotional and start panicking
- I’ve had this “fear” for a year now and
I want to get rid of it.

can anyone help?!!
or has anyone been through it and has overcome it ? how did you do it?

Hmm well why do feel anxiety when talking to an audience?
Is it the fear of messing up?
Fear of people judging/laughing at you?
Fear of embarrassing yourself?
Or do you just not feel confident in what you're presenting or such?
Or do you just not know? (which is totally fine btw)
