Teen Stories to Build Resilience – CLICK TO COMMENT

By Regina Saada  Getting out of your comfort zone is a fear most human beings face. I used to be afraid to attempt to shoot a shot in a basketball. I was afraid that I would miss and be humiliated. No matter how many times my coach would encourage me to shoot, I was too afraid because I was too nervous to break out of my comfort zone. I missed out on the thrill of actually playing the game the best that I could do. The next year I realized I missed out on a lot of fun and I was determined to break out of my shell. I missed sometimes but I scored a lot too. From my basketball experience I learned that even if you are afraid you must be brave and face your fears. Start moving out of your comfort zone now and face your fears like I did.
