We all get stumped by life situations and forget our resources. One of the easiest ways to start to move away from puzzling situations is to research, get information.
The more we know about something, the less helpless, in the dark, despondent we feel.
So, get informed. Read books. Talk to people. Do research online and in libraries. Take classes and workshops. Seek out experts.
Much of what makes you afraid, once you have information, will disappear.
