I would like to share this experience of mine with those in a similar situation. Recently I was in a crowdfunding project trying to get funds to put my musical on stage. There was a period of 40 days for me to meet my target and if at the end of the period I couldn’t reach the target all funds donated would be returned to donors. During those 40 days, I suffered from anxiety as frequently as every 10 to 15 minutes, checking on how many donations I got. Even though I have a lot of strategies to help myself out of the stress, out of the anxiety successfully each time, every 10 to 15 minutes is just too often. My blood pressure has risen from roughly 150 to roughly 160 because of anxiety. I knew I had to do something about it. I had to let go. Forget about crowdfunding. The moment I’ve made that decision almost all the stress, all the anxiety l was experiencing left me. I begin to find other ways to realise my dream. My message is when it is necessary, we need to let go. I don’t mean to forget about our dream project, just find other ways. Very likely, we will find other doors. Now another door is there for me to open and I am glad I did not allow the crowdfunding to put me in shambles. I always tell myself that when it is a fact, accept it and when it is a problem, solve it.
