The better you get at stops, the more confident you'll be in general. Both for balance and confident that you know you can stop if you need to.

Once you start getting good stopping with one blade, then try using both blades (inside & outside edges). Then try stopping while balancing on one foot.

As you get more confident with balance and weight transfers then transitions are much less daunting.
