My Worst Fear



بدترین ترس منI 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.
