Can’t Talk, Must Run

Hello all,

Today’s topic is Slur, via Daily Prompt: Slur. It made me think about slurring words, but not because I’m intoxicated. Because I am a horrible public speaker.

I know a lot of you can relate to that too. I always feel fine before presenting anything, but as soon as I get up in front of people or even just speaking at my desk, I start to get heart palpitations. It’s the horrible human instinct of fight or flight when you feel all eyes on you, and it sucks.

I looked up a lot of tips to help ease the nervousness, but nothing helps. My words are always too fast, too shaky, slurred, and just overall the entire thing is pretty embarrassing. People say practice makes perfect, but I’ve done speeches my entire academic life, and it hasn’t gotten better.

Sometimes, I just have to accept that I’ll be a bad presenter. I have done better when it was a topic I was interested in, such as Sea World, but on assigned speeches where I have no choice, boy oh boy do I suck.

Let me know if you guys have had the same experience with public speaking, you know wavering voice, shaking body, slurring words, and sweat everywhere…the normal.

  1. I’m exactly the same, but I feel that people are naturally good speakers or are always going to be uncomfortable when speaking publically. But, I guess practice does make perfect. The more you speak the more comfortable you will become.
