When we think of sports, the mental aspect usually comes into play. The reason is that it is absolutely necessary to be in the right frame of mind in order to be effective. There is no substitute for. It is necessary to push small distractions and BS to the background and live in the moment.
When we go out, the same think needs to happen. We have to put the distractions, concerns and fears in the background. The thing is this. When you leave your house, you have done all you can do at that point in time. There are only 2 choices: Go or Stay. If you choose to Go, think about that mental part and try to put yourself in the proper frame of mind. Know that you have as much right to occupy space on the planet as anyone else. Also know that every AFAB person does not look like Lena Horne or Elizabeth Taylor. If you need confirmation of that, drop into WalMart.
So, head up, deep breaths and do what you came to do. You can’t control what anyone thinks about your passing, or not, or sort of so, why get stuck in thinking about it?
Go get what you came for…
