I am a Level 9 gymnast. I have trained for 9 years and i’m not sure if I want to continue. My coach isn’t very understanding when it comes to injuries or even personal problems which makes it hard to enjoy gym. I love my friends but most of them are leaving. Some thing that keeps me from quitting is the fact that I could do well in my level next year. With that also comes the problem that i’m scared of most skills that I would need to progress. I really want to try other things and focus on my studies. I feel really bad wanting to retire because of all the money my family has put in for me but I also don’t want to make them spend more if I don’t enjoy. Gymnastics is all i’ve ever know and everyone always knows me as the gymnast. Do you think anyone can give me some pointers on how to make the right decision?
