Singing in your roomSo I've had a long day (not helped to the not so fantastic bus service) and want nothing more than to chill in my room and sing along to some decent music. But then my housemates are in the next room and they might hear me. Why is it so embarrassing? Is it because I'm really awful. Is it because I dont want them to think I'm awful. But then does it really matter if my housemates think I'm a bad singer; they surely wont be bothered. There seems no real reason for it to be embarrassing but yet I'm certain that it is. As soon as I think that someone is within hearing range my throat becomes tighter and so my singing worsens. So the embarrassment makes my singing worse and therefore increases the embarrassment…and there we have it I am stuck in the endless embarrassment cycle and the only option is to break the cycle and keep quiet.
But then didnt I want to sing.

The trick lies in intentionally singing badly, keep your decent singing until you're really alone.

Don't worry, I have exactly the same problem. Except my voice completely disappears. And it happens when I think of singing.

You shouldnt be embarassed! and i take it as you now are part of a cough choir that you enjoy it too! hehe. But you have music that is quite hard not to sing along too!
