Pick up the pen, and don’t be afraid.

Break the chains fear has on you and let your full potential free. I say this because fear of failure, particularly in school, has and is taking over young adults and teenagers.  I know it can invade my life as well as the lives of my friends. 

Where does failure fear even come from?

“Fear is false evidence of things appearing real,” life coach and geometry teacher Ms. Henderson said.

As human beings, we fear the unknown. We all want to know what’s going to happen and what the outcome is going to be.  The problem is sometimes in school, we just have to go for it, take some chances, without knowing what the outcome will be.  

That’s hard.

How do you break the chains?

“I start with a kid’s small fear first, then talk about how we think we can overcome that fear. Then, set a goal to beat the fear. Once they face and overcome the fear, it teaches them that they can get through it. And it isn’t as scary as it seems,” Ms. Henderson said.

You take charge and strive. You don’t fear. You move through it and get through it. Take that chance and try it out first. You won’t know the outcome unless you attempt every challenge.

“I picked up the pen when I realized I had to block all negativity and not focus on the bad. I learned to stay positive through my fears. Staying positive made me more open to people and my trials in my life,”  my friend sophomore Anthony Estala said.

Become fearless and pick up your pen.  It’s getting easier… for us all.
