But Will I?

 

The first thing to consider is: Could I?

There is no physical reason why I couldn’t be able to. I don’t need anything other than myself, and a voice to speak with, hands to gesture with. And I need thoughts of what I want to say and then the words to say it.

In theory, then, the answer is ‘Yes’.

 

So moving on, the next thing to think about is: Should I?

This is far more subjective and the answer would probably vary depending on who you asked. The people that would agree with how I feel about a topic might say ‘yes’, but then again they might think I’ll mess it up so say ‘no’. There is a similar argument for those who disagree -- they might relish me taking a chance, speaking up and making such a fool of myself that I lose all credibility whatsoever.

I know what I think, and I know in theory that my thoughts are as valuable as anyone else’s. But that doubt of making sense is muddying the water, so to speak. Maybe I should just stay quiet.

 

Finally the question is: Would I?

I’d like to say yes, especially if it was concerning something I feel really strongly about, but honestly......no, not a chance. Hully standing up in front of a room full of people to make some sort of speech is something just never would happen. I’d be more likely to climb Everest on my hands and I cannot do handstands. No matter how much I would want to, the panic, dread, anxiety and sheer lack of confidence would prevent it.

 

So the answer to: But Will I? is a most definite and resounding ‘NO!’ I'll write it down instead.
