When I get flustered in life I go back to the mantra of what you can control. It sounds so stupid and simple. Half the conversations in life are people bitching about things that are outside their control. At the end of the day, life is short. There are only so many things you can do. It's a path. It doesn't get any easier. There is no finish line. Care about the things that are in your power. If it's something you can't do, act on it. People are always in that panic mode. So make your ask or send a letter to someone. Once you've done it you've done it and be proud of what you're doing.
