With another recent run-in with Covid, I was quickly brought back to the impact of fear on my life. What I noticed is the different reactions to it. Some of us activate and blame, others, minimize and dismiss. All of us confront the same fact:
At Best, Our Control is VERY Imperfect.
How does life change when you accept this fact?
Well, for one thing, you allow yourself and others to have their reactions and see them as valid (although ultimately ineffective) ways to deal with the unnerving nature of human existence. I don’t insist as strongly that my way is THE way to handle what CANNOT actually be handled. You smile a bit more at all of our best attempts to confront a very basic (unsettling) truth.
And then you find a little more space to breathe.
