Stomp out fear ~ #selfconfidence,#tweengirls,#selfesteem,#tweenblogs,#adolescence

Shelly was born in a small town in the country. She grew up with loving and caring parents.They protected and provided her.They taught her how to tell the truth.As in all families there were disagreements.Sometimes there were words that were said that made her sad. Shelly looked at her father as her teacher and hero.Her father taught her how to be strong and how to pick herself up after trouble. He was a good person,but some of his words hurt.The most hurtful words that he spoke were,"You can't do that! You don't know how to do this!" Those few words hurt her on the inside.She thought the words were true and hid her voice and talents.Afterall,this was her dad speaking to her. Years past.Shelly is a teenager now and kept her courage.She could not let those words destroy her happy heart.She loved her father and knew he did not mean any harm.The words came from him and she chose not to believe them.She decided to try.Even if she failed,she could say that she tried.Shelly tried out for cheerleading,the drill team,band,basketball,and joined various clubs in high school.She saw that she could do things! Today,Shelly knows that the strength that her father helped her to stop doubting herself!She learned that she will only listen to positive words and stomp out her fears! Keep sweet, Marie
