My Life Story About Self-Acceptance

Around a year ago, I thought that I was a terrible flute player.  Whenever I would practice my flute, I would always play the wrong notes, and that in turn discouraged me.  Thoughts like “You are bad at this” or “You can’t do it” constantly floated through my head.  But a few weeks later, my friend Kate told me about the private flute teacher she was going to for lessons.  So, I started going to lessons with her.  I was becoming better by each lesson!  I have school flute lessons weekly and one week my teacher noticed a big difference in my playing!  It was such a big difference, that she told me I was going to the PMEA Youth Honor’s Band Fest!  Going to the band fest made be a stronger and more confident flutist.  In the end, I accepted that I could be a good flutist which led me on the track of getting even better.


  1. Thanks for sharing! I love the inner dialogue that we all can relate to! keep it up!

  2. Hey it’s Courtney! I like how you said that Kate helped you out and that you got better at it! How did the PMEA go?

    Thanks 🙂

  3. I liked how you voiced your thoughts in your post, Maggie! That was a good example of self-acceptance.

  4. Hi it’s Leila,
    I really liked how you added how your teacher noticed you got better and there was a pro from not giving up. I wish that I could’ve been more confident when I played the tuba. I wish that everyone could be super confident in themselves.

    Sincerely, Leila

  5. Star: I really like how this actually was made to mean something instead of just a normal self-acceptance story.

    Wish: I wish that you could’ve met that person in the beginning and then you could’ve been even better

    Wonder: I wonder what would’ve happened if Kate never told you about her private teacher…
