Being a teenager is not easy at all, but there are so many things out there that we sometimes need that little push to do it. Motivation!
I can relate to sooo many of you who are scared of failing something or embarrassing themselves. But honestly some of the things I am scared or don’t want to do are things know I will be great at or love.
One time my friend was desperate to be in this school performance we do every year and since I walked home with her I stayed at the meeting to see what it was about. I sat with her on the hard drama floor and listened to the teachers talking about The Sound of Music! It was one of my favourite musicals but I was so scared of what people would think, I might embarrass myself or I might hate it that I didn’t go to anymore meetings and I didn’t take part in the show that I loved. So for the whole of the spring and summer term I had to listen to my friend rave about how much fun it was and how many new friends she had made at rehearsals and all I could think was how jealous I was but also the fact I had no one to blame but myself and I promised myself I wouldn’t let fear stop me from doing anything I loved. And I wont lie during the next year I still backed out of things I was scared to do, but when the meeting came again I went with the same friend and I stayed and I listened. I could still feel the fear inside of me but I knew I would regret leaving so I waited until it was over and marched to the notice board and signed my name down. It was amazing, yes I was still scared and so many times I almost dropped out but I couldn’t bear the thought of going to see a show again and not being in it. And when finally the performance day arrived I was so embarrassed and I could feel my face going red on stage but I stood still and I remember at the end the massive applaud we all got and how good it felt! It was almost impossible to get me to sign up, a hard to stop me from backing out, and it took a firm word to keep me from running away from the stage. But when the applaud happened nothing could take me away from the stage and how proud I felt.
