Everyone is afraid of something, and pretending that you don't or coping isn't always the solution for it.
To stop being afraid of something, the first step is to acknowledge it.

I will start. :)

I am afraid that I will disappoint people who believe in me.

I am afraid that I will be abandoned by everyone.

I am afraid that I will be alone.

And I am alone for so long that I can't even remember anymore.

Oh! look at the time.
It's time for me to disappear for a short while. :)

When your dreams straight up say that you need friends.

RE GitHub donations: while paying OSS is good, the bigger picture is sick. Microsoft only donated to projects that opted into the GitHub payment processing system (which will take a 10% cut & then feed off source for Copilot). It's a campaign to get people to sign up & lock in. This didn't go to open source in general and they are still dealing with some back blow from charging $10/mo for Copilot. This is typical capitalist BS to try to snuff out competition.

Recommendations: who's to say you even need Git as there are VCS options. If you're on Git, you can try Sourcehut or Codeberg (or it's self-hosted parent project Gitea). You should also press against all attempts to standardize on GitHub as the only platform in town.
