Dear Andi,

Yeah, I often feel that I missed that one day in school when they taught … pretty much “everything else.” Things like less awkwardness, more self-love (hell, I’d settle for self-like on most days!), independence, etc. I usually feel behind the curve ball, and for years was too afraid to write & try to publish. Even now I live & write & publish in & through fear — that is the only difference. I do things even though I am afraid. It would be lovely to do those things & not feel fear, but that may come years in the future, if ever.
