    I am the most uncomfortable being myself when speaking in public.

    My field of work is in Education, which means that I have to be professional at all times. I feel uncomfortable because I believe I have to “put on a face”. In my personal life, I am an extremely outspoken/silly person. In my career life, especially in public speaking, I have to come across as being confident and “professional”. I do realize that my lack of confidence in public speaking leads to the discomfort I feel, but I also believe that because I am not myself in a group setting, my level of discomfort is challenged that much more.

    When I’m around people who have become comfortable not being themselves, and expect everyone else to do so

    I find myself to be most uncomfortable with myself, when i am placed in a position in which there is a social norm… I feel as if i have to put an act to fit in with these people or setting. But I have come to realize that no matter what the person or setting. I will always be myself because I feel the most comfortable when i do so.

    when I feel that the person with whom I am interacting is not being himself/herself.
    becuase that person doesn’t deserve to see the true me either. or at least I would be uncofortable with that.

    I am the most uncomfortable when trying to be me, when I meet strangers and they look at me and think I must be a snob. So it is unnerving trying to prove that I am not judgmental or a snob, even though I look sophisticated and speak educated. I sometimes feel uncomfortable when going back to my hood because they don’t realize that is where I am from. I also feel uncomfortable around snobby people because they seem to take meekness for weakness and I have to let the hood impose my strength and swagger.

    Im the most uncomfortable being me when around elders maybe… Im 20 years old, so not people in there 20s or even 30s, but mainly parents of people I know. I feel like im trying to put this show on. I feel as if Im worried about their dissaproval of me as a friend I try to be this extremely nice guy. Dont get me wrong I am a nice guy, but its different when your kickin it with the fellas…
