Today I saw my small brother take an airplane for the first time in his life.Before arriving at the airport he was super excited, then right before departing he was worried and in tension.
After a while in the airplane he was calm again.
This is the same for everyone. When we do something new we are excited until we do it, right before doing it we are scared, then we are happy.
It’s common, it’s human and it’s beautiful.
Sometimes when I hear people worrying so much about what they have to do out of the comfort zone I think of these 3 steps and say to myself “they’ll get there”.
But sometimes the fear is to much to handle and it’s able to block you completely.
In those times I always hope they will remember their childhood, when everything new was something they wanted, they feared it and eventually found a way to did it anyway.
