What I fear the most and how can I overcome that fear - Jeni Sherpa

I am afraid of heights, darkness, public speaking and being in front of a huge crowd of people watching I avoid going to high places whenever possible. And also, whenever I try to do something, I always think or fear that other people will judge me and make fun of me, so I rarely speak with other people. I hope to overcome my fear by confronting it.

My greatest fear and how I overcame it - Tenzin Jambey

People have so many fears in life, but we can overcome them by facing them and trying out the challenges that create fear. Like everyone, I have so many fears. I am afraid of darkness, blood, scary things etc. Out of all these, my greatest fear is my future. I feel terrified when I think of my future and what I will become later. As my friends put it, it's very amusing, and I believe the same.  This fear dips me into depression when I think of how my future would look and how I would take care of my family. Specific questions arise in my mind, like  would I be able to fulfil my family's wants? I fear feeling ashamed if I fail to meet my family's demands and wishes, as they put in a lot of hard work to send me to school.  But I also believe where there is dark, there is light, too; where there is sorrow, there is happiness too! There are plenty of careers and jobs that I can choose from, and this thought gives me relaxation and relief.  This positive thought keeps my fear a

Reflection on what I fear the most... - Shristi Khulal

Someone has rightly said that when fear strikes, there are only two ways to face it or run away from it. The best way is to face it and overcome it. I fear being in the spotlight or the centre of attraction and public speaking the most. I get very nervous, and I overthink others' opinions about me. My body starts shaking, and my heart starts pounding. I would like to overcome this fear and speak confidently, as it is essential in our lives. For this, I should be more confident about myself and interact with many people. Pestalozzi is also helping us to become more optimistic by organising workshops, for which I am very thankful. I should also stop being an overthinker. Shristi Khulal Pestalozzi Children's Village Society

What I fear the most - Tenzin Nyingsel

Tenzin Nyingsel Wed, 4 Jan, 09:54 Subject:  Reflection on; What I fear the most and how I can overcome that fear... I hope this email finds you well. What I fear the most is generally what many people have been through, which is the fear of getting a scolding by their parents, especially my father; even though he is the most friendly person in the family, his anger is the most dangerous from our family. I still remember the day when he scolded my brother for not picking me up from school and leaving me there till 6 or 7pm, which was very scary since I couldn't walk properly due to the injury on my foot. I can never forget that anger and the fight they both had because of me. For me, that's my biggest fear and how to overcome that fear is still in process because I try my best not to make him angry and to always listen to his guidance. Thank you for reading. Yours faithfully, Tenzin Nyingsel, From PCVS (Pestalozzi Children's Village Society) The Big Give 2022

How do I overcome the fear within? - Nishan Karki

Reflecting on my fears post the reading session at The Sunday School. I fear many different things, but I fear the most is failing to do several things or failure. I get this fear when I do not feel like I am not doing well in exams or in several things. To overcome the fear of failure, I try to be calm and do my work with dedication, focus and carefulness. I have good time management that can help me to overcome this fear. Nishan Karki Pestalozzi Childrens' Village 

What I fear the most... Tenzing Dhekyong N

Reading Chapter 32 - Human Quality: Preparedness "What I fear the most is the scare of the darkness. So generally, many people are scared of the dark. I have been wondering about those creepy things repeatedly during my childhood, so that's why I had a fear inside me of ghosts. I still am scared of a ghost, but I try to overcome them by thinking of funny movements which have happened today".  Tenzing Dhekyong N Pestalozzi World Children's Village

The greatest gift - Rishona Chopra

The greatest gift we want to give to our loved ones every day, at every moment, is happiness. We spend time with them, buy them physical comforts, and support them, yet they are sometimes unhappy. Most likely, it is because we are unhappy. Happiness is energy, not matter. Just by being happy ourselves and being happy while discharging our responsibilities, our happy vibrations radiate and trigger the happiness frequency in our loved ones and uplift their state of mind to happiness. Have you sensed that you need to make much more effort in sustaining your roles and responsibilities if your mind is unhappy? Despite your extra steps to care for and provide for them, are your family and friends unhappy with you? Does it leave you wondering what more you should have done? We often quantify our efforts and measure our loved ones’ happiness against it. The truth is, how much we do for people doesn’t matter. What matters is how happy we were while doing everything. While caring for people or d

Avni: Inside the Hunt For India’s Deadliest Man-Eater - Rishona Chopra

On November 2, 2018, tigress 'Avni' or T1, as she was known officially, believed to have been responsible for the deaths of 13 people in Maharashtra in two years, was  shot dead  in the Yavatmal district of the state. Like we humans think of killing animals and banning them from the world the same way animals want to kill us because humans and animals can both live in harmony, but fear causes us to create trouble. Just imagine yourself as a tiger who people want to hunt down and hurt; won't you want to hurt those who hurt you? Sometimes, when I look at a tiger's eye, I feel the sadness, fear and pain in her eyes.  After all, the cause of animals hurting us are only humans. We cut trees and make buildings in the forest, harming the animals. Imagine people charging in your home and ruining your place. You now have nowhere to live. We blame animals for hurting us, but actually, we hurt them primarily because of fear. Rishona Chopra Grade VI Gyanshree School

The Bravery Test - Rishona Chopra

Being brave is simply overcoming your fears. It can be your fear of the dark or of a dog or ghosts or shadows by just doing it. If you are scared, you will fall if you climb a tree, then don't do it, but if you want to overcome your fear, just do it. In the previous chapter, The Great Adventure, Totto-chan and Yasuaki-chan showed great courage. It took a lot of effort to climb a tree, but they did not give up and continued trying. In the end, climbed the tree and had lots of fun! Totto-chan overcomes her fear of ghosts. Of course, you don't have to meet ghosts, but just through thoughts, you can overcome your fear. She soon was happy in her fear too! She thought that if we are scared of ghosts, ghosts are afraid of us too! Rishona Chopra Grade VI Gyanshree School

Courage - Shaurya Buchade

Hi, I am Shaurya Buchade from Grade II – A. Meaning of my name “Shaurya” is “  brave and courageous”,  and I always behave accordingly! It is said that no one is born courageous, but one can develop a habit to be it. When I was 2 yrs old, I had a phobia of playing on swings, slides at the playground. My Mom started taking me to the garden regularly, where other kids of my age group used to play on slides very confidently and quickly; my mother encouraged me to do the same, but my little heart got filled with fear by the thought of climbing a slide.  But, one day, I developed courage and mounted on the slide slowly with my mother’s help and then experienced its joy. I had conquered my fear forever. If I had not taken that small courageous action on that day, I would have missed all the fun and joy of playing with my peers in the playground. One should have confidence in themselves; courage automatically follows. Whenever you face a problem, think for some time, and then find a solution

Courage - Khushi Badgeri

  Courage allows you to attempt things that you have not tried before.  It takes courage to admit and say sorry when you are wrong. Courage is mental or moral strength to withstand danger, fear or difficulty.  In short, courage means to say I have to do it, I will do it.  Courage makes us believe in ourselves. Let me share my experience. I had a toothache. It was paining so severely that I could not eat or drink anything. But I was afraid of visiting Dentist.  My parents forced me to see the Dentist. I went to Doctor and saw the Dental Chair, and I ran out and started crying. Then my parents told me that there was nothing to worry about and not hurt me. I told myself nothing to worry about and everything would be fine. You are brave and strong. You can do it. Somehow I managed to build up mental courage and got my dental treatment done,  Now, I am not afraid of any Doctor and their treatment. I know they will take good care of me. So, this is how I overcame my fear of visiting a Dentis

Courage - Aavansh Gupta

  Courage is to control fear in a situation that may be dangerous or unpleasant. You can swim in oceans, climb up mountains or go to space. But the main point is that not everybody dares to do that. Everybody wants comfort. You can choose courage or comfort, but you can’t choose both.  So, let me share a self-composed poem that could inspire everyone reading. THIS IS COURAGE YOU CAN USE IT AT ANY AGE WHETHER YOU ARE A SIMPLE MAN OR A SAGE THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS COURAGE IF YOU ARE A CHILD NOT EVEN TEN AND SEE YOUR FRIEND GOING INTO A DANGEROUS-LOOKING DEN DO NOT RUN AWAY AND QUICKLY GO AND SAY YOU ARE GOING THE WRONG WAY NOW COME WITH ME AND PLAY IT WILL SAVE THE BOY FROM GETTING EATEN BY A LEONINE IF HE JUST SAYS THANK YOU THAT IS ALSO FINE YOU HELPED THE BOY HE WILL RETURN THE FAVOUR TO YOU AT ANY AGE YOU HELPED THE BOY FEARLESSLY THIS IS CALLED COURAGE Aavansh Gupta Grade IV Gyanshree School

Courage - Aashay Gaitonde

  It was the year 2019. I had gone on a holiday with my family to Pali, where we stayed at a weekend home. On a lazy Sunday morning, Dad & I were playing in the kids' pool. I don't know how to swim, but I always liked playing in the water. It's always great fun to splash onto the water and create waves with our hands. However, who knew, that such a fun morning could end with a horror story. While playing in the pool, I slipped and fell face-first into the water. My head was UNDERWATER! I couldn't breathe and panicked. I couldn't move. It's only because my dad pulled me up that I could breathe again, albeit with great difficulty (because of the water in my nose!) Fast forward to 2021, my parents planned the same trip this weekend & to the same place. And guess what? My mom & dad said to me this morning, "We are going to play in the pool." And this time, it was going to be the regular swimming pool and not the kids' pool. I was petrified!

Courage - Ushita Saxena

                                                        “Courage is grace under pressure”. All of us, no matter how young, have done something courageous. It would be doing something for the sometimes or being calm under pressure. Here is my tale of being courageous. ‘Once, I was going to the park with my sister. I was going inside the lift. And after a few moments, the lights went out. The lift suddenly stopped, and it was going to the basement. I was surprisingly calm and collected and knew what to do. My sister, however, was panicking. As I tried to calm her down, the lift had arrived at the basement. I pressed the “call” button, and one of the guards on the ground floor told us to calm down. After 5 mins the lights came on. Finally, I went to the park.’ See? It isn’t a challenging job. Courage isn’t having no fears but withstanding them instead. You need it to begin. It gives you the ability to not be embarrassed or shy and take the first steps to try something. It is one of the mo

Courage - Rishona Chopra

Based on the chapter It’s never too late, from Is Your Child Ready to face the world by Dr Anupam Sibal Sometimes when we have fear or are in a situation where we have options, one risky and the other an easy one. Here we have to display courage. Courage is being fearless, showing an end to fear and bringing in bravery. Of course, it is difficult, but that is what life is about. Taking risks and having new experiences. Take the example of Dr Christiaan Barnard- a cardiac surgeon Dr Christiaan Barnard was an ambitious cardiac surgeon who started performing and studying cardiac surgeries. He started performing heart and lung transplants. He had a few cases where he could just make joy with his first successful surgery or put everything at stake. Here he took the risk and performed a successful surgery! So to have courage, you just need to believe in yourself. Rishona Chopra Grade V  Gyanshree School 

Courage - Hetal Vaishnav

Courage means the ability to control fear. Another word for courage is being brave. It is a good value, and it is essential for us. We should not be afraid of fear. So it is essential to inculcate courage in ourselves. I would like to share an example of a woman. Women face many problems, they solve all of the issues because of courage. If we are afraid of difficulties, we will never solve those problems. Courage also builds our self-confidence.  I would also like to share one more example of our freedom fighters. Today, we all remember our freedom fighters because of their quality of courage. Only because of their courage and bravery, our country becomes free from British rule. So let's be brave and stand for the right cause. Hetal Vaishnav  Class VIII A The Fabindia School 

Courage - Rishabh Sheikh

I believe that one of the solutions to overcome fear is to develop courage. Courage is the mental and emotional preparedness and ability to deal with difficult, challenging, and sometimes seemingly impossible circumstances.  Courage is a highly prized virtue, and many famous and respected people have spoken or written about it over the year. We probably all have an idea of what we mean by courage or bravery, as it is sometimes known. I learned that courage is not the absence of fear but the triumph over it. The brave man is not one who does not feel afraid; he is ready to face it.   Rishab Sheikh Class III The Fabindia School
