“Never apologize for being nervous.”
Whether it’s a job interview, a speech or auditioning for a part in a community play, nervous feelings are inevitable. They happen to everyone.
The difference is how each woman deals with her nervous feelings. First, you should accept them as part of you and know you are not alone in your feelings. Second, don’t feel the need to apologize for being nervous. When you do, you only draw attention to it. Keep in mind that even if most of the time you see yourself as nervous, your audience doesn’t. And, they don’t need to know.
Instead, take a deep breath, stand tall and speak. You are a confident woman with something important to say – nervousness and all.
