How to deal with someone who is intimidating you

This covers the spectrum from higher ups at work, love interests, people we don't know at parties, popular people from school or the office, even celebrities. Often people we look up to (or those who we just don't know who seem cool) can bring up feelings we harbor about ourselves that we are not good enough, smart enough, interesting enough. We are all made from the same source and the truth is -- and this is repeated in many spiritual scriptures "we are all special and we are all not special." We are all equal, my friends. So, yeah, I'm a weak, imperfect person." Even wolves get scared!

We are also beautifully different from one another, too -- which means all of us have some unique value and flavor to add to a conversation or social setting.

Shyness is misunderstood as aloofness all the time. As a sales professional that goes to a lot of networking events, I have been brushed more times than I can recall. As far as I am aware, I am still alive and well (and certainly more successful as a result of still going for it anyway). Like our values, the qualities that intimidate vary for everyone.

'So what' is one of the greatest things you can ask yourself in this world. Nothing made the need for this article more clear than when someone recently told me that before they met me, they thought I was intimidating. Super friendly, short, always smiling, girl from a small town, me?

The opportunities are abundant when you stop allowing fear to get the better of you.

You might make a new friend, a new career connection or get a date!
