You may worry about ‘getting it wrong’ or failing.
This could be a question in class or a test, putting your hand up to answer, or just trying something new.
Thought might be:
‘If I get this wrong, I will look stupid. If I show that I can’t do it, people will think I’m weak. If I fail, I will lose the chances the others have. I know I will get this wrong, so what’s the point? If my friends can do this, why can’t I? I’m the odd one out’.
