"That’s what it takes to be deeply involved with life. To relish both moments where you feel steadfast, stable. And persist past moments where you feel unmoored, lost." I love how you encapsulated exactly how I'm feeling right now so THANK YOU. Keep writing!
this is a beautiful piece. I'm not sure where the need for change comes from. One thing is for sure -- as humans who want "success", it is a requirement to continually add tools and language to your toolbox. I used to binge and be addicted to chess but not so much anymore. I highly recommend listening to https://www.perpetualchesspod.com/new-blog/2023/4/4/ep-324-im-levy-rozmangotham-chess-on-surpassing-3-million-youtube-subs-retiring-from-otb-his-dms-with-magnus-and-his-future-plans . Gothamchess is everywhere (well not too much on my Youtube feed since I stopped binging chess) but he reflects on his time from growing a minimal number of subscribers to 3 million. He's still the same person.
This is my favorite essay of yours. Absolutely beautiful writing.
