"Take a chance. Let go of your categories and get to understand the ever-changing nuances and moments that influence you. Seek out resources and community members from whom you can draw out information and tools. Play with new information and practice new habits. Share your opinion and experiences while being there for others as we all try to make sense and make things work.
Appreciate that you are someone who is learning from each experience and working towards a positive set of steps in your life. Appreciate that you are both independently in charge of yourself, while at the same time a member of a broader community helping each other."
