It takes courage to start skating as an adult. You are going to be obviously, visibly bad at it for a while. Kids get a free pass for being wobbly and falling down all over the place, whereas adults need to have enough self-confidence and personal security to know that nobody's really judging them because everyone in the rink understands how hard it is to learn.

The upside is that you really do get a lot of respect from experienced players if you stick with it. Again, it takes a lot of courage to get out there and make the necessary mistakes and keep showing up and improving.
Well said..
