Our whole life is trial and error

Our whole life is trial and error, and it’s an inconvenient truth to realize that no one really knows what they’re doing. It’s comforting to think we can turn to a book, or a teacher, or sky for all the answers, but the truth is, we don’t even know all the questions. What we do know from spending time on this planet that when things don’t work out, it sucks, but it’s rarely the end of the world (and in those rare cases where it’s actually the end of the world, we don’t have the worry, because the world is over, and with it, our problems). Just like any science experiment, we have to try something, and when it doesn’t work, try something else. When we apply that to life, somehow it becomes ‘try something, and fall into a spiral of despair when it doesn’t work out’. You’ve failed numerous times in life, and you’re still here. It’s that fear of failure that’s holding you back. Addressing that fear isn’t a light switch, it’s a baby step, and with that baby step you’ll be that much more braver to tackle the next #BLESS
