When I found TheHopeLine on Google, I found the answers I was looking for.
My story goes like this:
For the past few months, I’ve been learning an ice skating routine for a competition in March and there was a lad who wouldn’t leave me alone to concentrate. I was forgetting the routine, getting stressed about the moves, and getting snappy with everyone. I go to the ice rink, not to stand around and chat, but to skate and practice what I need to learn. But I couldn’t with Kirean around and I was getting more and more stressed. People started thinking I had anger problems and weren’t even talking to me because I couldn’t talk about what was bothering me. I didn’t want people to think I was horrible.
After chatting on here with a HopeCoach, I realized I just needed to tell my coach, Ryan, that I’m getting confused and stressed about the routine and I don’t mean to be sharp and snappy with him.
And I need to tell Kirean when I’m not practicing I can hang out and have a laugh with him, but skating time is practice time.
Thank you TheHopeLine!
