RELATIONSHIP ANXIETY

"Honestly, I felt like a freak because I got so nervous talking to people I didn't know very well.  I got passed over for a promotion because my boss wanted someone with 'better communication skills.'  But after the conversations we've had, I feel more confident to say what I need to say.  I'll never be a social butterfly—that's just not me—but I don't worry so much anymore about what people think."
