The world is a dumpster fire, and most of it is outside our own control.

Yeah, the weight of all you can’t control can sometimes swallow you. It’s this overwhelming feeling that you matter so much less than you wished that you would and that if you can’t really make a difference, what’s the point?

There was a point in my life where I felt worthless and powerless to change it…I felt very small and insignificant, and my life felt like it didn’t matter. You might not feel anything like that, but some if it might echo similarly, and it’s a tough pill to swallow.

I really like the “serenity prayer” from recovery:

God, grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change,
the courage to change the things I can,
and the wisdom to know the difference.

Hope the same for you friend :slight_smile:

Hi! We chatted about this on stream today. Like Nate said, the major takeaway: learning to be ok with what you can’t control is important for forward progress.
