BHS- Where you want to go, if you love to write!
Today was the Glee club tryouts at school, and as usual, I was incredibly nervous. I had to audition in front of a bunch of people, and it freaked me out so much to the point where I was shaking. Every year, I get so nervous and worked up about auditioning, and yet every year, I get up and sing. Afterwards, I’m fine and excited about the year to come.
After being a part of the Glee club for two years, you’d think I wouldn’t get nervous anymore. I would be used to the feeling of being in front of all these people and singing my heart out; but no. Every year, I almost decide it’s not worth it because I let fear take over and rule my life. It’s quite sad, to be honest, that I don’t do half the things that I want to, all because I’m afraid, and I think of all the worst possible outcomes if I go and do those things.
There’s so much pressure in today’s society to be perfect in everything and succeed in everything you do. It’s causing so much unnecessary stress on everyone, and this makes it so hard for people to live their life to the fullest. We’re scared of failure, of being judged, of not fitting in, and yet we take no risks or do anything that we really want to do. We should learn to take more risks in life, and stop doubting ourselves. Hopefully doing those things can lead to a happier life. After all, we only get one.
