Lying it aside
Once I had dispelled the myths in my brain about all of the things I was nervous, harassed, worried, concerned over and dreading, I was able to talk to my friend about what sparked it all off. As it turns out, there were/are concerns on both sides of that fence. Many of them that my friend had were just as unfounded as my own. We were both putting way too much into things that wouldn't be happening overnight and as agreed- when the day comes... then we will see what is to come of it.
