PRAISE FOR GET REAL
I loved Get Real! It was a great experience for me and it helped me a lot with stress and fears. Get Real was a great change in my life. It was really fun, and a weekend to remember.
I loved the weekend! It gave me the chance to make friends with people from another country and also I finally got to find the real me. My favourite part about it was the campfire night because it was cool to burn away all the fake beliefs the group had… And we got to roast marshmellows! ☺ Doing the processes with the other teenagers was really good because it gives you help and guidance, but you feel like you are helping and motivating your partner. Hearing all the positive comments people gave me was so inspiring and it gave me the self confidence I needed. All the coaches and Tamsyn were all beautiful people that helped me through any difficulties I faced. I love you guys ☺ Thank you so much.
Coming to Get Real has changed my life. The first time I came to these camps I was a troubled child and learning these tools has helped me change the way I see things and act. It has helped me stand up for who I am. It is because of Tam and Get Real that I am like I am today…. It wasn’t them that changed me, but it allowed me to change myself.
I am so grateful for the weekend I have spent on the Get Real camp, you have helped me become me and not just something my friends want me to be. This would have to be the best gift anyone can give to someone like me. I am honored to have spent the time together that we had. You have helped me so much in the three days in which you showed me the world and who I am.
My experiences of this weekend were truly wonderful and I had the most fun time I’ve had in a long time. I love it, it just makes you feel so great and light and worthy and that you can do anything. I love all of you here at Get Real you are all so true and real and I love you all! My process was awesome it got so much stuff off me and most of it wasn’t even mine. I went into my power centre very well and I coped with the situation really well. The things I realised this weekend was that I can do anything and that I am awesome also that I am successful and can do anything… it’s awesome! I can do it, and I love these camps!
What I got out of Get Real was to let your emotions be free. Don’t bottle them up because you will slowly crumble from the pressure. Let them be free, trust me you will feel a lot better.
This weekend was AWESOME!!! When I came to this camp I was stressed out a lot and wasn’t connected with my inner self very well. I hid my true self under layers of insecurity. Now I have ripped these layers away and have realised what sort of person I really am and that what I have been doing wasn’t really being myself. I loved this experience in all ways the only thing I could improve on was myself. I have been told that I’m beautiful, innocent, fun, persistent, loving, and a courageous, strong person. I have sorted out some issues that will really help me in life.
At first I didn’t want to go to Leadership Camp but when I got there, I was so happy I went. There’s nothing like it, everybody there is so amazingly different. It also helped me in life to really get real.
Get Real has been a blessing for me. It has been an experience that has enlightened me about emotions, thoughts and actions. I am now a better person and I am ready to face the world with any challenge because I know that I will be able to face it. All because of Tam, Sarah, Brett, Dex and Angel. It has been a gift for me and an experience that I will keep in my heart.
The Get Real experience has been an awesome, even though it was my first time I still felt like I fit in with all the other participants. For all those struggling with emotional dilemmas I highly recommend attending.
