In Which the Protagonist Gets Her Head On Straight

OK, feeling better. Sometimes you have to get your head out of your ass, remove your own insecurities from the situation, and get your shit together.

Is there some kind of trick to that? Because I am having a pretty hard time doing things that are new and/or hard lately. For real.

You have to let go of everything. And I mean everything. This is really hard to do for somebody who's gotten kicked a lot, but it's the only way to do it.

Let go of the outcomes, stop making it all about you. Sometimes the stuff that people have to work through and deal with has nothing to do with you. A lot of what makes up insecurity is the belief that we are somehow bad or deficient.

In fact, what we generally have to do is learn how to understand other people and their insecurities, instead of knee-jerk reacting in response to our own.

At least, that's what I'm working through right now. lol
