Dear Dish-It: I'm Afraid of Performing in Public

Crazy asks: I love to dance and all but I'm afraid of dancing and singing in public. I can never build up the confidence to do the things I love in public. Is there something wrong for me or is it natural? Back to Article

I'm not afraid to perform in public. Just remember that it does not madder what people think of you its what you think of yourself.

I also have another way that may make you less scared. Find one person in the audience, boyfriend/girlfriend, mom, dad, grandparent, best-friend, ext, and think they are the only person watching you look only at them and only think they are here for you. (f.y.i. make sure you think of a person that would not put you down because if they put you down you might get more nervous.) Good luck with preforming. And remember always do your best no matter what.

It is totally natural to be afraid to preform in public. I am 14 and when I was 3 I started to dance. I was soooo terrified my first performance, but my teacher told me to think of everyone in their underwear and you will think you are the only person who is not weird and u will not be as scared. Its a rather silly thing to do but it works.

Crazy: You are not weird. I love singing and performing on piano, but I am afraid what people will think xD. I have now thought, who cares what people think? Be you. We are all beautiful in our own way!

Dear Crazy: your not alone! You should see me when I have a dance lesson at school, i'm a nervous wreck! don't worry about people thinking your weird, most people don't like performing in public. you could try what I did, which is to do small things with some of my mates first, to get used to it, and then do a couple of solos. hope this helps. big luv! xxx

My "best friend" for two years told me she wasn't coming to my birthday party because she had plans. I told her when the party was 2 months ago and she OK. Now its 4 days away and she says she isn't going because she has plans with her boyfriend. She is my best friend! Shes like my sister! and to know that she picked her boyfriend over me hurts. She is the worst friend ever! What do I do?

I can talk to them like a normal person, but more because you don't have to worry about them gossiping! :D Haha XD You haven't seen some of the guys at my school...  Really, you should just be yourself. Don't try too hard thinking about the right things to say and the right way to act.  That's when you fumble and mess up. Be natural! Be yourself! And relax! You might blush a bit or feel embarrassed, but that is OKAY. I promise you'll survive.  Yeah, guys can be confusing, but they're human too! :) Wow. Shocker, right? :P Talk to them as you would anybody else ^-^

We don't all have the same personalities. We're not all amazing conversationalists (I'm talking about you Lex! Thanks by the way. We can always find something to talk about ^-^)  -and no one can expect from us. I'll say it again, be yourself. That's all anyone can ask of you -and if they don't like that... too bad! You deserve nothing more than friends (and possibly a friend? * wink wink * Sorry!!! ) who accept you just the way you are -and love for it.
