Exclamation Fear

Hey, i have been riding for i think 6 years now (I'm 16) and i can carve up a storm regular. and i am beginning to learn switch, i can get down a hill without falling, but i cant carve yet. I can pop pretty high for my size (5'5" - 115lbs) and i can land a 180 and 50/50 small ride on boxes. I really want to be able to hit rails and boxes and bigger jumps in the park but i just cant seem to get there. I think i have 2 fears. 1. getting hurt, i bruised my tailbone 3 years ago and it still hurts today if i sit in a weird position. 2. being embarrassed. I think I'm so used to looking good when I'm carving down a diamond that i don't want to look bad it the park. i know i shouldn't care what people think but i do. i can pop pretty high for my size (5'5" - 115lbs) and i can land a 180 and 50/50 small ride on boxes.

Any tips for getting over these 2 fears?
