How to cope

May 10, 2011 at 4:27 pm 1 comment

The last thing I wanted for my second speech was for it to be as sad and as hard on me as my first speech was. So I tried to make it one of hope.  That though cancer is a scary diagnose you can pull through it and any other stress placed on you. When I was finished I wasn’t sure if it came out right so I didn’t even look at my feedback papers till I got home….all I can say is thank you. Again my fellow classmates were supportive and caring.

I’ve learned that I can give a speech even though I hate to be the center of attention. Speech class has most definitely taught me that we ourselves are our own harshest critics.

    Cristina, you’re right we are our own worst critics, but that’s what keeps us humble. Your speech was uplifting, you showed how you were able to push through a tough time in your life and had the courage to share it with all of us. To me that shows a strong character and a person who does the hard thing, not the easy thing. Good luck on your next speech and keep pushing forward.
