I am up to day 16 of the SEP. I feel slightly better but have a long way to go. I just realised something. I get very fearful of doing new things. Like at work. All my peers have a false perception of me. They see me as calm and competent and always come to me for advice. The truth is (which I sort of knew but am only now acknowledging it), that I am constantly fearful of looking foolish in other people's eyes. This results in a feeling of nervousness and being hyped up prior to and during a meeting or training course. Although it has never happened I worry that I won't be able to concentrate or won't understand the content of the course. I need to stop being so hard on myself. I need to stop worrying whether others can see my flaws. This leads me to the question. How do I stop these feelings of insecurity and negative self talk.?
