Your stuttering might increase when you're around people you believe to be in authority.
If you find this happens, remember the following:
1. The person you're afraid of is only human and has his/her own problems.
2. Take the individual out of the authority position, and he/she is just like any other person.
3. The person has bad breath in the morning 🙂
Authority figures can seem scary some times. However, they have their doubts, and uncertainties like every other being on Earth.
