We all have it, don’t we? Even if some of us try to seem fearless, there’s always something we are afraid of.
I don’t know about you (and I would really like to know, so leave your comment below ♡), but I’ve always had that fear of starting something new. When my mom brought me to my first dance practice, I might not have been really scared because I was around four years old, but I obviously felt uncomfortable. At that time, my dance group was new, and all of the kids were just getting to know each other. But later on, my teacher decided to move me to another level. And that was terrifying. I was so not ready to go to a practice where people already knew each other. I thought I was going to be something like an outlier. But then, to my surprise, I found out there were people from my class, which helped me get to know them better. You know, I’ve noticed that there are always some things you do not expect and they might even be a pleasant surprise!
Since that day I’ve been trying to face my fear and try out new things. For example, I’ve changed the schools, twice (yes, this might be a bad example because it was mostly for education and a better life, but there were other experiences, too). The first time, I went to college, which is not actually college as you, people from the US, might think. It’s a school, but some of the teachers there also the professors at the university. People go there mostly because they want to challenge themselves and prepare for going to the actual college or university. It wasn’t that bad, mostly because we all were the new “selection”, I guess you can say. We all were new to the school, even though some kids already knew each other. By the way, there was that pleasant surprise – there was one girl I’ve met before! That was really nice seeing her again and getting to know her. But the next time I’ve changed schools was somethings completely different – a different country, in the middle of the school year. That was crazy. But look at me now, I’m living life, haha!
It’s just that fear of not being accepted and not being able to fit in that holds us back. All the changed in our lives are for the better. That’s why that fear of joining other had diminished into ‘that little fear’
