“The best advice I’ve ever received was from my mother. She used to say, ‘Panic will kill you when nothing else wants to.’ My mom had all kinds of anxiety disorders: she was afraid of small spaces; she was afraid of large spaces; she was afraid of water; she was afraid of heights. You name it and she had an anxiety attached to it. Even with all that, she managed to raise me as a single parent, secure in my lifestyle and my way of looking at the world and relatively well adjusted. My thought is, if she was able to do that, then I have to be worthy of it.”
