First of all, it can stop us from trying new things and taking chances. If we're always worried about making mistakes, we might miss out on some fun stuff.

But why do we feel this way as tween girls? Well, we're still figuring out who we are and what we're good at. There's a lot of pressure to be perfect, and that can make us extra worried about making mistakes. Our brains are still growing, so we're more likely to think the worst of every situation if it doesn’t turn out the way we hoped or planned. We also tend to compare ourselves to others, which can make us feel more anxious about not measuring up to our peers.

Let's face it, we tend to feel anxious about making mistakes in all kinds of situations, like school tests, sporting events, trying to be creative, and even just hanging out with friends and family at game night. But believe me, it's okay to mess up. It's actually how we learn and get better at things. So, let's try being kind to ourselves and giving new things a shot.

Take a deep breath, and remind yourself that it's all part of the journey. Trust me, you'll be surprised at what cool things you'll discover you can do when you let go of your anxiety and open yourself up to new experiences.
