Five Minute Friday: Speak


It’s Friday!  Another stressful week at work, but I think we’re finally gaining traction.

Linking up with Kate Motaung and the Five Minute Friday community.

This week’s prompt is: speak

*********************

I’ve often heard that one of the most common phobias is public speaking.

I get it.  There’s been a few times when I’ve actually wanted to speak, but most often I’m reticent.

I think if I had a burning passion that I wanted to communicate, it would be easier.

Actually, I have a lot of burning passions, but none that are focused and well-articulated.  Plus, they tend to migrate depending on what’s happening in my life and what’s influencing me at the moment.

Overall, I prefer written communication to spoken.  But, most speeches are written, so the mediums do overlap.

Fear to put your words out there transcends all forms of communications.

I’d say a percentage of that fear is healthy and keeps us from saying what we shouldn’t.  Most of it, though, is just a stumbling block that prevents us from connecting with people.
