  1. Men, I wonder if the emotion contagious can travel so far! I feel exactly the same. I woke up at 2 am wondering, so I decided to listen to my book radical acceptance and the theme was fear! I struggle too hours wondering what is my biggest fear? Fear? I started sick yesterday with a horrible cold and I wonder why am I confused again and what is the confusion this time? Working on accepting instead of wondering… Love to you!
