Today's Wishcasting question is ," How do you wish to come out of your shell?" Since I was once very quiet and shy and now am able to speak in front of large groups giving lectures, etc. with confidence, I thought I don't know since I really have come out of my shell quite a bit. But then in being really honest with myself, I realized I do great speaking in front of large groups or one-on-one with someone but if I am with a small group of people I am usually the one listening not talking. I had a friend tell me once that I needed to participate more in this type of setting because I really did have a lot to offer to the conversation and that I was cheating myself as well as everyone else by not sharing. As I am writing this, I find it intriguing that I can be very confident in some situations but not others. So my answer to todays prompt is that I wish that when I am with a group of people in social situations that I become more of a participant in the conversation rather than a listener.
