Teach me

18 Jul

How do you prepare yourself when you have to do something that you don't feel ready for, or you are afraid? However, some things can't be delayed. There are days when I face people with confidence, when I feel strong. But sometimes I feel not ready to confront some situations, people. Should I just take a deep breath and step inside? I try to imagine what some other person would do in my place. Usually that person is someone I admire, for different reasons. If I could, I would look at the world through theirs eyes. Sometimes it helps.

The picture we have about ourselves may be different than what the other think of us. For many years I tried to fight my nature and be more extrovert, communicative..At the early age I was punished by my primary teacher for being too shy. She said she will never give me the best grade even if I'll deserve it sometimes. And it was like that for the next 4 years. Some traces of my shy nature can't be deleted or changed, but instead of fighting against it maybe it's better to embrace who we are.

    To embrace but to learn how to cope with it. We all have doubts and lack of confidence sometimes. I will never forget my first kendo tournament in Hungaria :doh: I lost because I was not convinced I can do anything. Now I have more confidence and focus to what I want to achieve. But it needed a time and a lot of practice 🙂

    Just to say hi :left: …As for your doubts….I wish I know the answer…But then my whole life would change and it wouldn't be me anymore so… 🙄 But you know what helps…Happiness. No, really it helps a lot…Being happy with yourself or whatever…The most important thing is being happy…And then everything else just comes by itself…:yes: So don't just try to be someone who you are not…You are not extrovert and you don't have to be…Just smile and find bright and happy side in everything that around you and your shyness will eventually be less visible…

    @Gyng- is it this movie ?@Rania- dear, sometimes it is good to let go our fears and tension and cry. I try to face the situation but there is so much tension in me..that's why I imagine what someone else would do in my place. That's maybe not good. I can't be someone else.

    Yes thats the movie (my sister made me watch it…actually for everything I said she told me that must be from that movie so I wanted to see what that movie is like :sherlock: ) There is some things from pantheism that fits in this movie claims…

    You made me remember of my 2nd grade when I moved to a new primary school. At the first time I was too scared that I could not say a word when my teacher asked me although the answer was in my mind. After that, I was usually volunteer to stand in front of my classmates to answer her questions – forced myself to get used to with crowded people. After a week, no one thought I was the newcomer.Sometimes I'm worried too much and my knees even shiver but I always tell myself that I can do everything I wish – that works for me 🙂 I've realized that being self-confident is the most important things I need.

    I don't know why people generally think that shyness is bad. We can't all be the same! Parents and teachers especially. Instead of helping these children to gain more self-confidence like Mit mentioned, they react in the way to make these children more shy. That's wicked!

    You're welcome, Mira.I agree with you, Anchi. I truly thank my teacher. She was very patient with me. Many times I volunteered to answer but when she pointed me, I still could not say a world like the first time – she wasn't angry with me at all. That helped me a lot.

    nicely and thoughtfully said, Mira… I think embracing our natural personality traits is good. learning to mature in our reactions- even to unfair or cruel people, doesn't require changing the way God made us, extrovert or introvert… it can actually assist us in gaining victory over some obstacles, too.I'm sorry to hear of unfairness in your teacher, I have experienced such in a couple of cases- very disheartening, but when I realized that there was nothing I could do but try my best (do my part) and leave the rest in God's hands- that helped me to cope and accept that I do not have control over certain things at all… prayer is powerful, I am learning more of this now. ❤ sometimes to change others, or situations, sometimes just to accept the things that will not change. or give us confidence peace, or direction to move forward. thanks for sharing, Mira ❤

    @Anchi- I agree and I think we'll know how to help shy children to gain self-confidence 🙂 @Mit- Your teacher is really good pedagogue and she obviously loves her job :up: @Jill- yes, to embrace ourself as we are. And I'm not completely introvert, I open my heart when talking with friends.:heart:
