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.
