My Worst Fear
I am afraid of water.
I don’t know why I am afraid.
I have never had a bad experience in the water.
I just never learned to swim.
I should have done that when I was just little.
It would be easier for me to swim now if I had started when I was young.
I will go into the shallow water, but I start to panic when the water gets higher than my chest.
I don’t like the feeling of not being able to put my feet on the bottom of the pool or the lake.
I don’t like to get water up my nose.
I choke and cough when that happens.
My friends just tell me to relax and I will float, but I find it hard to relax in deep water.
They keep telling me that if I panic I will sink.
Most of my friends have had swimming lessons.
Some of them are even lifeguards.
They have tried to teach me to swim, but I think I need to go to a place where they actually teach swimming.
It would be so nice to jump into a pool of cold water on a hot summer day.
That would be so refreshing.
If I go out onto a boat, I always wear a life jacket.
I think it is wise to do that.
Everyone should wear a life jacket on a boat.
I would rather be safe than sorry.
I have decided that I will overcome my fear.
I will go and take swimming lessons.
I have a goal.
By this time next year, I would like to be able to swim the length of the pool without being afraid.
It is best to face your fears and deal with them.
I hope that I can overcome my fear of water.
