Lesson 8: Control


20 Lessons From 2020

Out of all the thins I dislike about myself there's one that I dislike the most: the need for control.

It got burned so hard this year. In so many deliriously beautiful ways. This year things that I had controlled, or I thought I had controlled were taken away, not just pandemic-related stuff.

Control gives you the illusion that everything is right, that everything is yours, so it has to be right. It's truly the peak of ego. And one that I embraced for too long. It's the worst thing I've ever done; trying to control.

Lesson eight: let the world be, let yourself be.
