Unhappy Planning to give me a hard time with my presentation - January 28th 2010, 10:45 AM

Last week everyone was supposed to do a presentation.
There was this girl that I dont really like that did hers, she had something that wasnt very good and sounded like a bad idea.
So at the end when we were supposed to ask questions... I stupidly put my hand up and said something.
I wasnt mean or horrible about it, I just asked something and said what I thought.
Then we all carried on listening to others presentations.

We ran out of time before it came to mine and a few other people.
So we were told we would do it next week... which is now.
And Ive heard that because of what I said and asked last week, they are planning to make mine difficult and give me a hard time

I regret it so much, I wouldnt normally comment in class at all.
I just couldnt help it because she always is so boastful and always puts me down.
I saw an opportunity to show her how it feels and I did it... now I regret it, I shouldnt have bothered, I should have known it would only make things worse for me

The presentation isnt important, there are no marks given for it, no assessment, no grade, nothing. It was just supposed to be a task to do that day. So it wouldnt matter if I didnt do it.
Im so scared I will be made to do it and they will make me look stupid in front of everyone

Now I dont want to miss all of this afternoon, but Im thinking of turning up late so I dont have to do the presentation.
Ohh I just dont know what to do

Don't give her power over what you do. Do your presentation. GHold your head high. And hey, even if it goes rong. Just say something calmly along the lines of 'well, none of the presentations were perfect where they.'

You could also just not do it, pretend you haven't prepared for it.

Rosemma, first off don't be afraid.
Secondly, when you do the presentation then take the questions and answer them.
If you can't simply answer that you don't know. But make the presentation, as it is important.

I want to mention an additional possible way to deal with a similar situation in the future. You could first tell the person that threatens to give you a hard time by making you look stupid in front of others that you did not intend to belittle her after her presentation and you only asked a neutral question. If she still threatens to "retaliate", nevertheless go ahead with your presentation. It is possible that she will not find the courage to actually interfere with it. However, if she actually tries to do that, immediately remind everyone how bad HER presentation has been and prove that your presentation is much better. All honest persons will agree with that and you will have made her look stupid instead of being embarrased yourself.

Hi Rosemma!!

I hope you're having a dandy day.

I LOVE reading messages like that. [See quote above!] It's those 'light bulb' moments - those life-lesson moments - that always make me smile. As I see it - everything that went on there - was turned into something that will forever benefit YOU. And you lucked out. Not every 'life lesson' comes from something as insignificant as a 'presentation'. [Especially one that had no effect on your grades or anything else] PERHAPS - it is a lesson you needed to learn NOW in order to keep you from 'taking the easy way out' in the future with something far more important.

I say - just smile to yourself and KNOW in your heart that YOU are NOW a much wiser person.

GREAT BIG HUG
Craig!!
