I agree completely with Jasper, as I think would most workshop participants. Feeling anxious yet optimistic, I made my way over to the hotel in which the workshop would take place. Very quickly, I was put at ease by Andrew and the other workshop administrators. I also realised all the guys participating were just regular guys of all ages and backgrounds. |
I struggled with paruresis for many years. It was not getting any better over time and truly affected my life, my happiness and my confidence. Even a mild form of paruresis can really stand in the way of your development as a person in so many areas (social, professional, relationships,...). The workshop does not solve all your problems in one weekend, but it provides you with all the tools you need. You obtain knowledge about the condition, how to go about dealing with it, and how to deal with any setbacks in this process.
I find that now, I still have a long way to go, but at least I know where I'm headed, I know how to get there and I'm convinced I will get there and will overcome this problem! Even though this is a long journey, I feel I advanced significantly during the weekend. Sometimes it's just good to pay undivided, positive and productive attention to a problem for a few days to really understand it and yourself better, and to see how you can overcome it. So attend a workshop and see what you think. You really have nothing to lose!
