Day 3 of Blog Every Day in May and the topic is "things that make you uncomfortable." How about: writing this blog post? This will be a tough one to hit the "publish" button.

I have a lot of insecurities, which seems weird to some people because I have zero problem performing if I have a musical score or a script, but when it comes to one-on-one interaction I get nervous. I hate to call people on the telephone (other than my family) because I feel like I'm bothering them. Even with close friends I've had this problem. More than once, when a good friend had a baby or was in the hospital I didn't know what to do. I don't want to ignore them, but I also always feel like they have more important people who want to see them.

And of course that last one reminds me of Stuart Smalley:

These are things I need to keep telling myself. And to any friends out there who may have thought I was being an uncaring bitch, now you know the truth.

  1. I hate the phone too. So now that makes you even more awesome in my book. And you were pretty high up there to begin with. :)

    Love you.

  2. This is great, and reminds me of Shawn. I never considered his awkwardness and hesitance about meeting new people could be about insecurity, because he's so smart and funny, I never think he would have anything to be insecure about! Thanks for making me look at it another way!
