I had the same experience. Now I give virtually any public speaking
presentation without much, if any, second thought. One of the reasons is
that I know my subjects much better than I did as a child. Also because I
know everything is a theory and subject to interpretation. So, when I know
someone will be disagreeing with me in the lecture, I don't take it so
personally and know that my theory is at least as good as the opposing
theory. Other people will sort the theories all out for themselves.

I don't even mind if I change my mind later and agree with the opponents. I
just change my next lecture accordingly and introduce the new information.
