I have often read in interviews that there are celebrities and performers who after years of being in the public eye and putting themselves out there still get nervous and anxious when performing. Usually, such a declaration is followed by immediate eye-rolling (mine). If you do it often enough, surely you cannot still be nervous and anxious every time you put yourself out there? Every time???
So, if it is so hard to believe that the more you do it, the less anxious you become (according to my way of thinking), than why is it that I am in a constant state of feeling like I need a barf bag the instant I submit more articles or proposals or queries? Can someone please tell me that feeling will go away soon? It’s okay. You can lie.
I am starting to hear back on some of my submissions.
Could you please pass me the barf bag?
