Appearances before the public are very frightening for artists. Particularly, when asked to perform or present or speak on occasion. The thought of not being misjudged, of not making error, of wanting to engage and leave soon, is something what creeps into an artist’s mind.
Artists crave for recognition but when it comes to them, they feel shy. Shy, because they never believed that this could happen, and what would the audience really be thinking.
It is not an easy task to present yourself. Some thrive at the situation and some are petrified of it. To them, it seems difficult to come out as an accomplished individual.
They don’t instantly get this sense of becoming the one that people are there to express their love for and that should have been enough to give comfort to an artist’s mind.
