Of course, to break with your tried-and-true-and-not-so-useful-anymore ways, you’ll have to be vulnerable. Yeah, I know; sorry about that.
Quick reminder, though: no matter what happens, you will be fine, really. Sure, you can scare yourself pretty badly as you consider everything. Maybe you will scare yourself enough to tempt you not to be vulnerable. And don’t fall for it. Just remember the trick: Feel good. Then act.
You’ll be fine.
