People are complicated
Life is chaotic and that scares us
So we try to define, label, constrain, and guide
It gives us comfort
But the thing is
the more we try to control the uncontrollable the worse it gets.
It’s a lot like being swept out like an ocean current.
Anyone who swims will tell you to relax and float along…that struggling is futile and you’ll just exhaust yourself.
Eventually you’ll be out of the current.
You’ll be somewhere new but you’ll be ok.
You’ll be tired and a little scared but you’ll make it back to shore and you’ll have discovered something new.
