@wishingonadream04:  Aww, I totally feel you – I also dislike being the center of attention at events.  In fact, sometimes I get panic attacks from having too much responsibility on me, or worrying about people having fun or whatnot.  At any rate, have you talked to each of the ladies about how you feel?  Maybe if you guys agree on all the events at the party, and you know ahead of time what will be happening, you can mentally prepare yourself / you can all agree on what you’re comfortable with, or not comfortable with.

@wishingonadream04:  I was so nervous before my shower this weekend. Here’s what I did that totally changed my focus. I changed the focus from me to my guests — the whole party, I made an extra effort to really tune in to my guests and what was going on for them. It made the whole experience a ton easier, and I will definitely take that approach for my wedding. For example, one woman at the shower wasn’t feeling well, so I spent some time focusing on her and talking about things that would make her feel better. Another woman had applied for a workshop, and so I focused on her and asked her if she got admission. My focus wasn’t on me at all, and how nervous I was. It was on other people. Hope this helps!
