Ha! I post a link about pushing through fear and counsel friends on their opportunities and achievements. Days later I'm deep in fear's grip, feeling powerless. At a workshop this weekend I found myself in a familiar place and one I thought I'd left behind. A place of panic and powerlessness. An embarrassing public freezing, with my face flushed, my voice quavery and tears threatening to strike at any moment. Followed by a hollow feeling of recognition at this weaker part of myself which I haven't yet shaken.
I set myself up for it. I really wanted it to go well and yet when we introduced ourselves at the start I said I expected to find it difficult.
