The most important thing to remember is that you should not be afraid of your own shadow.

The second most important thing is that if you are, then it’s probably because someone has told you that the world was a scary place and they were trying to protect you from it. You can trust me on this one: I know what I am talking about.

I have been scared for as long as I can remember, but never more than when I was young. And yet my childhood wasn’t particularly traumatic or anything like that; in fact, by all accounts it was pretty happy and normal (as far as these things go)
