"Where do you wish to grow your confidence?" the answer practically sprang out of me.
I would like to gain confidence in my speaking ability and have just a little bit of the "gift of gab," not a lot...there's nothing more annoying than people who talk incessantly for the sake of talking... but just enough to see me through social situations without stumbling over my words. The more nervous I am, the more I reverse my words, mispronounce words and just generally bumble thing up. So at a social gatherings, I will be the quiet one, not because I am self-absorbed or stuck up, but because I am being cautious that I don't say something to embarrass myself. Although a few drinks of wine may loosen my lips, it does nothing improve my skills at intelligent conversation, and if I am going to make an ass of myself, I would rather to be the first to know.
