Dear Abi – I like treats. I think you should eat a small (human) treat before you practice or compete, and imagine that you are getting that treat from me. Focus on the feeling that Dear Mishu and your friends here are behind you 100%. Then just let your body do what it knows how to do!

Dear N. – I usually run away from people who are angry at me. If they’re angry a lot, I don’t even get near them to start. In my experience angry people can hurt you, so if I were you I would you get away.
