Since I Was 7

I started doing gymnastics since I was 7 years old. I would watch on it on tv and begged my parents to let me do it. They would always say "no it's not safe." "It's too dangerous." However, after awhile they finally let me do it. I fell in love with the beam the first time I was on it.
Well one time when I was 14, I was on the beam practicing my routine. I made a wrong And I almost slipped. I was perfectly alright. But one of the girls told my parents and they freaked out and said that they knew it was too dangerous for me. I tried to tell them that it was nothing serious but they didn't listen. They told me I had to stop doing it. I was so angry. I didn't know what to do.
I haven't done it since buy I miss it greatly.

That sucks.
Did you at least get to keep your leotards? ;)

I'm sorry about that.😭

That sucks you were not allowed to continue what you loved.I think parents always look out for the best interests of their kids so it probably worried them too much to let you continue.Hard to blame them right?
