killed a 10 minute presentation with cbt

I found out that I had to do a presentation in groups like 2 weeks ago. I was nervous because i thought i wouldnt find a group. anyways i decided to call one of the people in the class whose number i had and asked if he wanted to work with me. he said yea without hesitation. i wasnt going to ask him at first because i thought he wouldnt want to but then i started to use the cbt techniques about how i go about thinking of the situation and i asked him and im glad i did.

Now on the day of the presentation i was so nervous but i used another cbt technique where i observe the other people in the class. when other groups were presenting i noticed that nobody was paying attention or they were on there phones and didnt really care. Also another technique that I used when i was presenting was to focus on the people in the class and not on my inner feelings. Using CBT helped me do this presentation without any major problems.

Great job on the CBT!
The people on the phones kind of concerns me; that's mean.
Other than that, you had your thoughts in line with you were seeing instead of what you would think with anxiety.

You are a success story waiting to happen!
