"Know! A person walks in life on a very narrow bridge. The most important thing is not to be afraid." Rebbe Nachman of Breslov

A friend reminded me of the wonderful writings of this Hasidic Master. Some people think that there are just two emotions, fear and love, from which all other emotions are distilled. Might be true. When people are angry, it seems it is really that they are afraid. So, how not to be afraid of what lies ahead of us in caregiving and in all things? Perhaps this is another good application of "Act as if." If we practice anything long enough (some psychologists say about 30 days), it becomes a habit for us. So, let's act as if we are unafraid.
