Little Winged One
There's this sweet little old lady that lives in my neighborhood. I've just recently become aware that she does'nt have a car. We got to talking about how hard it is to survive without a car. So,last week I pumped up my courage and told her I'd be happy to take her to the grocery this week. I figured it would be a pretty low stress thing for me,why not help her out? I need practice just being around others and making small talk. Older people are'nt as uncomfortable for me to be around as are others. Well,this morning I started getting a little terrified-heart pounding,could'nt think clearly,etc. I went thru with it,even though I constatly worried I was talking too much,too little,boring,annoying etc.,etc. I'm going to take her again next week. - Hopefully it will be a little easier! Right now my mind feels drained and I really want to take a nap ,just so I can calm myself down.
