    I understand you don’t like the unpredictability of the future and would rather seek comfort from confirmations of the past. Think of it this way: TODAY BECOMES TOMORROW’S PAST. Print this out and stick it on every surface. Today’s the first day of forever. You ultimately have the power to mold it into anything as you wish. So make it count.
    You can get through this. I’m wobbly myself, but don’t mind me. I’ll be here to light your way.

    2. How do you transform fear?

      “Comparing the fear you felt before doing something with how you feel afterwards is the tool for transforming fear. It’s only through that comparison, again and again, that you grow more confidence in deciding you’re going to do the thing anyway. You have to have some other feeling you’ve developed that you trust more than the fear. It could be love, hate, anger, passion, commitment, friendship, just about anything. Sometimes I do scary things purely out of self love: I want the future version of me to look back and say “wow, I did that. If I could do that, then I can do this.” And on it goes. It never ends. I know I will never run out of things that scare me that I should probably do, which means I need to continually re-experience the cycle of being afraid, doing it anyway, feeling good and then finding something new to be afraid of.”
