    I am literally bawling right now. I’m 21yrs old and one of my biggest insecurities is my speech. I have really bad speech anxiety so I tend to be super awkward in starting conversation, keeping up with conversation and ending conversation. I always wanted to go to a speech therapist but I hide this deep insecurity because I’m actually really embarrassed by it. I’ve learned a lot recently and have since improved my speech anxiety a little but by taking deeper breathes in between sentences but could really use more help. This video really inspired me to keep working on this insecurity and to not give up. Thanks BuzzFeed.

    4:00 watch him talking in 1.25 speed and you can hear more emotion in his voice. He seems to speak at a very slow pace that makes him sound more monotone. I haven't watched this vid till the end to know what happens next btw.

    I need help speaking louder 😔 everyone says I’m so quite and ask me to speak up but I think I’m talking loud enough. And being honest to myself I don’t think I can yell 😬 all my friends and coaches ask me too and I blow it off.

    Just some advice: you seem to make everything sound so matter-of-fact in your speech, it's a little off-putting. However loved how hard you worked overall to sound and look engaging with your gestures. Hopefully you can learn to let loose and feel more comfortable soon, with practice! BEST OF LUCK!

    Yo I relate to this guy so much I hate my voice and everyone thinks I’m always mad or uninterested in them. Imagine how many friends I could’ve made throughout my entire life. They should teach kids this in middle school or sumn. I could’ve been a completely different person.
