This summer I am trying to do things that scare me, so that they won’t scare me anymore. Lately my biggest fear has been writing. While I think I am an ok writer, some of my professors don’t agree and frankly, that has really shaken my confidence. So much so that I barely write on any of my three blogs. I know I need to get over it and that most of this is in my head. I just need to write.
This summer I want to learn how to skateboard. this is something I’ve wanted to do for years but I was scared that I would fall. Sure I’m going to fall, but it’s not like I’m going to fall off a cliff or something. worst case I’ll scrape my hands and knees (nothing new there). I’ve also allowed my friend to talk me out of this, her reasoning being that I can’t do it. I hate it when people tell me I can’t do something.
Finally, I need to tell people to stop treating my like shit or acting in ways that hurt my feelings. I really, really don’t like confrontation, but I’m realizing I don’t like they make me feel more. And I really hate the way I feel when I don’t say anything. So this is something that I really need to work on because I just want to be happy and there are a few people in my life who make that difficult, and actually a few that I just wish would go away.
So these are my summer goals. Wish me luck.
