My Fear of New Things

Jace in Bethlehem
[What do you want to write about?] Maybe my being nervous about many things.

I’m always sure I’m going to make a mistake when it’s time to do something new. My brain insists I will fail so I don’t want to try. Maybe that might get in the way of my talking. I’m mostly worried about failing. My thinking is that I need help more than I do.

But if I am honest, I’m mostly making myself hate new things to make them go away. Then I never have to fail. But that gets boring. So here’s my new method: I’m going to tell myself to try and remember how mom hated teaching at first and dad give her tips and now she loves it. I’ve already seen this work for me with piano. I love it!
