By Linda Banbahji Fear can cause many people to lose several things. On a personal lever fear causes me to be too scared to raise my hand and answer questions in class because I might get it wrong. As a result I lose points in my grade because I don’t really participate in class. In addition I may never know the true answer to my question because I am too embarrassed to ask. I acknowledge this fear. Because like everyone, I’m not perfect. From this session I learned that “Mistake is the teacher”. I have to work on myself to improve. Even if I get the wrong answer my mistakes will teach me and I won’t get the answer wrong on the test. Hopefully, though conquering this fear it’ll help me conquer another fear, until fear won’t cause me to lose anything else.
