Eric Bigger Conquers His Fears as He Takes Swimming Lessons
When it comes to conquering his fears, Eric Bigger is diving right into the deep end.
The "Bachelorette" Season 13 alum got vulnerable on his Instagram Story Wednesday as he revealed he's been taking swimming lessons. He revealed, "I’m sharing this for the first time. I’ve been taking swimming lessons for the last two and a half weeks. I believe I’m on my eighth or ninth lesson. It’s been a big fear my entire life."
Eric explained the process has been "challenging" and "uncomfortable," but he's not letting that stop him.
"I just want to get it over with. I want to learn," he continued. "But I got to have patience. I got to have compassion for myself because I’m very hard on myself when I make mistakes. But, it’s alright. I’m going to get it."
Eric added, "It’s very humbling not to be good at something. Here I am learning three times a week. I have 18 lessons. I’m going to figure it out. I thought I’d share it with you today. Don’t beat yourself up."
