My Best Day Ever
I was practically done with the program. I can finally speak fluently and I am no longer afraid to say what I want to.
It feels like a dream to be able to speak fluently. On the last day of the program I was so excited to go out into the real world and use my strategies to speak fluently. I wish I could feel like I felt that last day of the program every day. Everyone has a dream and being able to speak fluently was always one of my most important dreams.
Now that I have been through the program I can now say whatever I would like to without stuttering. I am so thankful that I can now speak fluently. It is a wonderful thing being able to talk whenever I want to without being embarrassed about it. Do you love to talk, because I love to speak now too.
I am no longer afraid to say what I want to say. One thing that I didn't like about stuttering is that I was always afraid to speak because I was afraid that I was going to stutter. Now that I am through the program and know how to control my stuttering, I can speak anywhere I want to without stuttering. You may think that this whole stuttering thing has no importance but to me it means a lot.
Being able to speak fluently is the best feeling in the world. Finally, I can say whatever I want to without being embarrassed or afraid that I am going to stutter. Talking out loud or in big groups is easy for me. Now that I know how to control my stuttering, I now talk out loud and volunteer for very big speaking parts. I advise all people who stutter to never try to hide your stuttering and be embarrassed about it and most importantly never think you can not do something because you stutter.
