I can speak with confidence now

Stories of change

Monday, August 21, 2017

I do stuff that I know that I'm going to like. Like the sweet courses... Candle making, was one of the classes. Dream catching making... and the cooking classes. So yeah, I sign up for stuff that I know that I'm going to enjoy.

[Before] I didn't really like to attend to a lot of the things because my confidence skills weren't very high. The last few years, my confidence levels have changed. [Now] when I get put into a situation that I don't know the people, I'm quite comfortable in my own way... I'm really quite chatty with people that I don't know. When I went to that woman's expo, I just started chatting to one of the [women]... I turned to this lady and just started chatting to her, and I didn't know who she was at all.

[The most significant change for me is] my confidence. [This is significant because] I wouldn't have been able to walk up to someone and say, hi, my name's [Brenda]. I can do that now... I wouldn't have been able to do that... Before I used to speak really fast because trying to get it all out. Now that I can just talk normally I don't seem to have a speech problem. That's to do with confidence. Confidence that I know that I can speak normally.
