    Obvious but important
    Step Zero is obvious the same way your blind spot is obvious: always front and center, but never quite infocus.
    You will adapt my friend because I very rarely have anything negative to say about people, now at time's I point out when I think something isn't right but I try my best not to do it in a judgemental way...I may not always succeed but I try

    It’s natural for me to be afraid, and experience anxiety. Anxiety is an uneasy, apprehensive feeling I get when faced with dangerous situations (physical, mental and emotional). Understanding my fear and embracing it, is recovery.

    Palms sweating , heart palpitating while lecturing was engendered by fear of failure, until I realized, that perfection was my mistake.

    Wow that makes alot of sense. Iam a perfectionist too and in my work it's great but for everything else I get distracted on it. I cant leave it alone until I get it perfect even though I know there is no such thing as perfect. When it spills over into my normal life it gives me major anxiety to expect so much out of myself I believe. I dont know how to let it go.

    I edited this post 5 times already lol
