An Uncomfortable Feeling

Day 3: Things that make you uncomfortable

The top of my list would have to be meeting new people. Whilst I do actually love having new people in my life, those first few meetings are so uncomfortable for me as I become very nervous. I either can’t think of anything to say or alternatively the most ridiculous things come out of my mouth in order to fill the silence.

I am going to Plus North in September and whilst I can’t wait to meet all the bloggers I have read and talked to via Twitter for so long, I am also terrified at the thought of meeting so many new people alone. A cheeky cocktail somewhere before the event may not go amiss!

Seeing/hearing racist and homophobic behaviour makes me uncomfortable. I like to think that I would say something if I witnessed it in front of me. I may be nervous in front of strangers but my moral conviction is strong enough that I don’t think that I would hesitate.

Compliments make me uncomfortable. I am actively trying to work on this one as you should just be able to say thank you when someone gives you a compliment, without trying to belittle yourself or whatever it is that you have accomplished.

That is probably my top three of things that make me uncomfortable, what’s yours?

Check out the other ladies on this challenge!


  1. This is such a good idea for a blog post, a way to know you better x


  2. Someone once suggested whenever I got a compliment that made me uncomfy to write it down and keep it for a different day. I can't say it's worked yet, but I'm trying!

  3. I'm also nervous when meeting new people. I get so awkward and I'm awful at small talk with strangers, unless we share interests and hit it off. I can't stand racism / homophobia either or people who judge others for being this that or the other. It'll quickly put me off somebody. xx

    1. Small talk is something I am terrible at, trying to work on it though! xx

  4. I'm also not good meeting new people in "real life" … while I have no problems to meet then on the internet. ^^

    Love, Mel xoxo

    1. That's the beauty of the internet, we get to hide behind our computer screens and our personalities are allowed to properly come out!
