I learned to do something new (how to drive a stick shift) with someone I don't know that well. Usually I'd be too anxious and not take up the opportunity. I get too embarrassed and flustered when I mess up, and then I can't think straight and it makes me mess up even more, so I just give up. But I pushed through and did it anyway.
At first I was doing well and was kind of getting the hang of getting into first gear without stalling, but then we left the parking lot onto what started as an empty road, until cars began showing up. I started stalling at stop signs because of the pressure I felt from the other cars and couldn't think straight. I couldn't get the car moving without stalling anymore. The person teaching me kept insisting I do it over and over, but I couldn't get the car started again for the life of me, so I kind of stood up for myself and explained that I can't think straight when I'm stressed and that I'd like to go back to the empty parking lot and start there again. That staying there I wouldn't learn anything or comprehend any instructions. They finally agreed and we went back to the parking lot and I stopped stalling without the pressure. They're going to continue to teach me and I hope I get the hang of it soon, because it's pretty hard so far.
