My arms were crossed, my right hand on Carl’s left collar and my left hand on his right shoulder. I squeezed my hands together but he kept struggling, getting closer to breaking my grip. I remembered to bring my elbows in and I saw the shock in his eyes as he realized blood wasn’t getting to his brain. When I let him go, he said "That was awesome!"
Nice writing Chris.
Life is full of uncertainty and the universe is indifferent to us. We have to decide how to live in this situation.
E.x Life with your grandparents or parents in country side.. you will have lots of opportunities for same😂😂
Awesome to see your mini-posts linked in here!
Hey Chris, good writing. I really liked that quote from Tinkered Thinking - there seems to be a huge amount of truth in his assertion that if we can regulate our emotions (and frustration especially), everything becomes learnable. Powerful. But of course, regulating your emotions is far from easy. Or I find it so anyways.
I just wish there were some solid statistics that would show me exactly what percentage of the time I could expect embracing uncertainty to work.
