I've been reciting roughly 5 minute long and very personal poetry/rapping over the phone to a group of about 15 people, most of whom I don't know very well yet, for about twice a week for the last month.

The nerves and anxiety I feel are much more intense compared to anything I feel in the average social situation. My hands start shaking and it's hard to catch my breath at first but I intentionally slow down inside a bit and take brief moments to steady my breathing while reading and it eventually settles down about halfway through on it's own.

It's showing me I can do so much more than I ever thought I could. That nerves/anxiety won't kill me. They always pass with a little time if I let them be, instead of trying to fight them and get rid of them. That if it's a new situation there will always be anxiety to some degree and to be okay with it realizing once I'm in the actual situation it's pretty much never as bad as I Imagined in my mind and many times something I would of never expected and would never of known I was missing out on something great.
