Okay for the first time ever, im going to vent.Here it goes...
So for my whole life, I've never known how to swim.  I've been put in multiple lessons when I was little and multiple lessons now, but I'm still too scared to learn how.  Everytime I think about it, I always get really sad.  That's the only thing wrong with my life right now.  So my mom put me and my brother in swimming lessons (for the millionth time) , which starts in 10 days.  Every day, I think about it, and think about how to try to avoid it.  But then another part of me tells me to stop avoiding it and man up and just learn how to swim.  Every time this happens and every time i think up a strategy to make it easier for me to learn.  But every time I go to the pool, I just start getting more and more scared and I end up chickening out.  I really want to know how to swim, but I'm just scared that I'm going to drown.  And another problem is that my lessons are on Thursday nights at the rec center when a lot of people at my school go there to hang out.  And i'm afraid they're going to see me and tease me when they see me at school.  I don't know what to do.  Everyone is always going to waterparks and im just sitting there like "i wish i knew how to swim so i could go to all these waterparks and have fun."  But I'm probably never going to learn because im too chicken.

aw, im sorry honey!!! Im sure youve probably heard this already, but there is honestly nothing to be afraid of. I dislocated my knee about a year ago and was paralyzed from the thigh down. about 9 months ago I regained the ability to move my legs. I had to re-learn basic things, such as swimming. Trust me, I know how you feel. Its really frightening at first. But you just have to trust your instructor and know that you will be absolutely fine. See if theres a way to ask your mom if you can move your lessons or take them in a pool off on the side somewhere, away from where the kids hang out. think of all the fun things you can do in the water. But most of all, just trust yourself and know that you CAN do this, you WILL do it, and you'll enjoy the summer and going to the beach and stuff so much more :) hope this helped a little!!!
xoxo
