F：Swimming has always been my fear in my life, even scarier than death. I always joke about myself I can't go into water,so I go up.
Since March I got tendinitis from climbing, but I still climb from time to time,my finger inflame again and again. I want to heal my finger and think "What should I do when I can't climb?"
Swimming is the answer. It's time to face the indescribable fear of water, and Dimi say I can teach you. first time was at the beach 15 mins,teaching me how to breath in the water.
my demon told me"you shouldn't do it,it's scary". I said fuck you,demon. I'm the one who's in charge of my life. I put my head in the water and breathed out. That's 15 mins!! I can face it.
Today, at first I wanted to bail swimming. I still went and picked up Dimi heading to swimming pool. Compared to last Saturday, I've got 15 more mins in the class,which is 30 mins in water.To me is very remarkable, a big leap,and I learned how to face the fear calmly. I started to talk to myself,it's weird but effective. today I've got more confidence breathing in water,and learned how to float like a jellyfish. I still want to learn lying down,relaxing on the water. I'm pretty inspired.
Thank you to have you teach me how to swim, Dimi.
how to face the fear? No second word, DO it, or distracting the fear by talking to yourself.
