Fears

Everyone is afraid of something or other. Getting over it shouldn't be that difficult should it?
It doesn't matter what the fear is is. Spiders. Dogs. The dark. Whatever. It really doesn't matter. I know this because I have spoken to a lot of my friends recently about being scared. I didn't think I had a real fear. Everyone had told me about their fears but I had just assumed that I had none. I was always telling my friends to stand up to them and get over it. I didn't understand what the issue was.

That was until I was offered to go on a trip which was 8 nights and an amazing oppurtunity to go on a boat to France. This sounded amazing, and I accepted. However, later that day I realized that I would be away from home for 8 nights. 8 NIGHTS!!!! I couldn't do that. I couldn't. That was when I realized that I do have a fear. I can't sleep away from home.

I then said that I couldn't go on this trip as I'm not ready to get over my fear.

Everyone is afraid of something or other. Getting over it shouldn't be that difficult should it?

It really is, and no-one can force you to get over it. You have to be ready. Be proud of your fear.

First Days

This week is the first week back in school for most pupils across the UK. Not the most exciting thing ever when your starting the final year of your GCSE's. I can tell you this because at this moment in time, I am sat in a classroom which contains, none of my closest friends. I am by myself while the rest of my friends enjoy PE or something else. Not very exciting. However, this may not be a bad thing. It could be an oppurtunity to make friends.
I guesswhat I'm saying is that sometimeswecan be taken out of comfort zones, and theresnot much we can do but embrace it. Try and make the best of a bad situation.
