CP has heard words of encouragement from many - I keep sending her great little quotes I find on mental toughness and working through fear but I think hearing stories, ideas, thoughts, etc from cheer people who really KNOW what she is feeling/going through might help. CP landed her full on the tumble track the end of October... over 2 months ago. They are BEAUTIFUL (not just because she is mine lol, her coaches & coaches from another program that her coach was showing it to say so too) but, she will not take them to the floor. SHE is annoyed with herself for being afraid to take it to the floor - she has said physically she knows she can do it but is afraid of getting hurt - she is saying she is "wasting time", "just wants to throw it", etc - I am being the supportive mom "When you are ready, you will do it", "Anytime you spend in the gym is not a waste", etc but inside I want to scream GO DO IT ALREADY AND YOU WON'T BE AFRAID ANYMORE!!!!!!! Mean....terrible...rude... I know but.....it is killing me that I can't help her in anyway. I hate seeing her so frustrated and annoyed with herself. I know it has to be her, she has to get sick enough of waiting and brave enough to do it. She has made a little progress on the floor as she has attempted and gotten around to 1/2 on the floor but has crashed (she may have landed a half but I'm ot 100% sure) but she doesn't get around on it because she keeps stopping herself when twisting. It's the mental game - how do you break through the mental game?
