Something to try
Now that you have done the quiz you will have identified things that you avoid or put off. Lets look at this list again and choose a few things that are the most important to you. You might want to ask friends or family to help you with this.
|What am I putting off?|
|Have you ever made up an excuse to avoid meeting a friend?|
|Do you avoid answering the phone?|
|Do you avoid eating in company?|
|Have you deliberately avoided someone you know so that you don’t have to speak to them?|
|Have you stopped going to a regular club or social gathering?|
|Are you happy that friends or family do things for you that you could easily do yourself?|
|Do you find yourself working differently for example sending someone else in place of you for meetings?|
|Do you have an excuse at the ready to get out of meetings or leave social functions early?|
|Do you use ‘dutch courage’ to help you cope?|
|Do you act differently in company?|
Now that you have made a list of some of the things you have been putting off, let’s look at how you can begin to move forward.
