I am Afraid, Mama!

Dear MC,

Do you know, it is okay to be afraid. It is okay to feel the butterfly in your stomache. It is okay to sweat. It is okay to accept that you are afraid of something.

But the best thing to do when you are afraid is what you have always done -- tell us, let us know, speak about it. Let us know that you are afraid. Let us know why you are afraid. Let us know what you think about it.

It is also good that you always come to us when you are afraid. Talking about it would make the fear a little smaller. Together, we might even have the chance to push it completely away. When  talking about it wont help, let's hold hands, give you a hug; we could cuddle together and crush the fear away.

It is also okay to cry, we would understand. When the tears have dried up, we could again talk about it. We could cuddle again and again. That would help, as always.

Or we could take a stroll to free our minds. We could play. There are a lot of things that we could do together to overcome your fear. But first things first, keep on talking about it.
