When I feel very self-conscious, my eyes start to get really watery to the point where it almost looks like I'm crying. It's kind of like when a person blushes -- but instead my face turning red, my eyes tear up!
It especially happens when I am speaking specifically about myself (for example, during a recent interview, when the interviewer asked "what's your passion", as I started to talk about it, my eyes started to water). It also happens when I give my deep down opinion about things. When it starts to happen, I have to look away or down at the table--and it comes across puzzling to the other person. It happens often during interviews...not the entire interview but as some point in time, it does happen. Once I get through it (it lasts for about 30 seconds), I seem to be able to regain my composure and it doesn't come back during that time.
I need help with this desparately or else I don't think I'll be able to effectively interview. Has anyone else had some kind of self-conscious anxiety where it physically manifests itself outward? How have you been able to cope with it? Any suggestions for a really good coach?
