It may sound counterintuitive, but I think it helped me get better at asking for what I really want.
I was sitting on a mattress in only my bra and tights, with just a thin blanket separating me from the view of his roommate.
Over the course of six months, I'm facing my biggest fears (Pigeons! Horror movies! Networking!). It's not going great so far.
I couldn’t stand not being immediately good, especially in front of other people. Practice makes perfect? No thanks!
