Facing your fears

Facing your fears

Hey guys!

Today I want to talk about facing your fears.

I do drama at school and I really like it, but when I have to act in front of my group I get really anxious. It’s not only acting, it’s also talking in front of people. When I have to do a presentation in front of my class, I start to get really nervous and shaky.

So last week, my drama teacher asked us if we wanted to act in our annual school performance. For a whole week, there is a performance every night to which parents can come. If we do it (which most of the group really want to do), it won’t really be a performance. It will be the presentations and comedy sketches in between plays.  Just thinking about it already makes me nervous. It isn’t too bad of a stage fright because I know some people that have it much worse. But when I go on stage,  I get so stressed that I forget what I am supposed to say, and then I talk too fast not knowing that I am talking 10 words a second.

And that’s how I came up with this post idea!

Imagine you are a tree. A tree can’t grow without rain. Even though rain isn’t nice weather, it helps the tree grow. For people it’s the same thing. You can’t grow without having bad times. Even your worst fears, if you don’t try facing them they will never get better. I know this is a Girl Online quote but it is completely true.

Even though I’m afraid to do this, I know that I will be able to do this if I believe in myself. Same goes for all of you. Even if you fail the first time don’t think you can never do it. Because you can but you have to admit that you are scared of it. Don’t push it away in the back of your thoughts thinking it’s nothing. Don’t be ashamed of it. We are all scared of something and that’s ok. And after all what doesn’t kill us, makes us stronger.

What about you? What are you scared of?

I hope you enjoyed this post! 🙂

XOXO, Rosie❤️

    Wow! I’m currently trying to get where you are with your blog but I think I just have to tweak my blog a bit.

      That’s so sweet of you to say that! And yes! You can only improve with your blog! At the start I was really having difficulties to make my posts longer. But after a few months it came by itself . I have to say I don’t really like my old post but you have to start somewhere ! You will see, the longer you have your blog, the better it will get! xx

    wow great post! I’m so proud of u 😉 and I know completely how u feel – before our performance in drama this year I was actually considering just not doing it, but then I took a deep breath, and allowed what was going to happen to happen, and I forgot one line but it didn’t seem to matter that much haha, and I was so relieved when it was over 🙂 just remember, that there’s a time before it happens , a time when it is happening, and a time after. if ur freaking out, just think “in an hour it will be over” 🙂 hope that helps 🙂 love this post, its really inspiring 🙂 I can’t wait to hear how it goes!! xx

    Loved this post! Good on you for posting about this topic. Very true that everyone is scared of something even if they say they’re not scared of anything.

    this is really inspiring, I LOVE acting so much I feel like it helps you forget if anything bad is happening in your life and focus on your character. what I do before I go on stage because I get bad stage fright is picture myself in my character and think ‘what would my character do?’ and I get into character a little before I come on stage although I still get nervous when I’m doing public speaking as myself because I don’t really have a cover to hide behind.your post has really helped me xx

    I love acting too, and the Girl Online quote! It’s so important to look at things in a positive way and to build on your mistakes and turn them into something successful.
