I can write about the lessons I have learned on any given number of things, but there one lesson I struggle to learn no matter how many times I gain experience with it. NERVES.
I do not know how to tell myself rationally that there is a reason to remain calm once I start getting nervous and escalating in a situation. The pain hardly ever parallels the reality.
I cause myself so much grief.
So, in the words of a license plate I failed to take a picture of on the highway yesterday – “I turn 2 U.”
How do you remind yourself not to “sweat the small stuff?”
