Daily Prompt: Sink or Swim

Tell us about a time when you were left on your own, to fend for yourself in an overwhelming situation — on the job, at home, at school. What was the outcome?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us PERSEVERANCE.

No one would believe… “I” would have to fend for myself…

“feel left alone”…

“have an overwhelming situation”…

Shyness can be so debilitating…

No one can help you… you are struggling with this fight inside you …rca0017

Wanting to win… wanting to free yourself…

Everything seems so overwhelming…

Crowds of people… laughing …”At me?”, I wonder…

People achieving… “I know I can do better!”, I say inside…

Having so much fun… “I like to do things… I can be funny and laugh”…

Others being asked to participate… “Just ask me!… I want to!”…

I do persevere!

I am strong!

I am determined!

As one being shyI observe a lot!…

I come to see that we are all the same…

people are just people…

having problems…

having difficulties…

having happiness…

having successes…

having failures…

having bad luck…

having joy…

I begin to see that “I” am an important human being…

a person God created just like everyone else…

I start to change…k6222670

I open my mouth… and find people listen to me…

I volunteer…

I make suggestions…

I laugh and make the joke…

I do the asking…

I make myself aware of how others are looking and feeling…

They like me for who I am…

My shyness…. gets shifted to the background… and I step forward as me!
