Recently, a couple of people told me that I am more much confident in real life than I appear to be on the blog or on social media.
Does this make me fake? Or good at concealing my racing heart and negative inner voices?
Maybe I am better at presenting a different side to my personality?
As a child I moved 4 times before I was 7 years old.
Anyone who has done the same will tell you, it is hard. Losing friends can feel like the world is ending. (I’ve witnessed this when Cheeky Monkey left his best mate E behind in England.)
With each move I became better and better at ‘being the new girl’.
I think when I meet people for the first time, that is what I am presenting.
Before a new social situation or meet up, I am very, very nervous. But when the moment comes, in spite of the butterflies, I become the ‘new girl’ again.
This comes across as confidence, which is fortunate.
How do you cope in new situations?
