Try the following to connect further with the film’s story…
Visualize the ‘animal’ that you battle with in social situations
- How exactly does your animal trip you up? Around the ankles or knees so you can’t get to the places where you’d like to be? Or around your mouth or throat so you can’t express yourself the way that you’d like? Or does your animal work its way internally to make you uncomfortable physically?
- Once you are better acquainted with how your animal restricts you, think about how you could tame that animal in the future. Think of a word or combination of words that you could say in your head while taking some deep breaths to keep yourself calm when you feel any social anxiety, shyness, or discomfort. Practice the words and breathing ahead of time so you’ll be ready when an uncomfortable moment arises.
