Nerves are good. They are a sign that you are onto something. The way to tackle them is not to assume that you are not nervous. But rather in accepting that you are.
Being emotional is fine too. Until you don’t dread. Let your emotions be genuine and come in short bursts.
You (or your life choices) don’t matter as much as you think you do. Most people will be fine with or without you.
Take good proteins just before. And exercise.
It’s going to be a rollercoaster ride. Be patient and humble as you move along.
