Sometimes I feel overwhelmed with all of the events and outcomes that are yet to be determined in my life. What if I fail in my career, or my relationships, or building the kind of life I want the most? These thoughts can keep me up all night if I let them.
However, worrying about the uncertainty of the future isn’t productive in the slightest, because these worries won’t change what happens in the future.
Living with uncertainty is something we all must do. Life has twists and turns, and a series of events can leave us in a place we would never have expected, for better or worse. And a lot of the time, fearing these twists and turns takes a worse toll on us than the actual events themselves.
All we can do is be proactive, act kind to others, and go after what we want. Sometimes the stars will align for us and things will work out, and other times we won’t succeed. We should let this undeniable truth make us strong, and not keep us fearful.
