Fight the power.

But don't fight reality.

Because what's so is just what's so.

We live like our subjective reality is it.

It's our way or the highway.

But that's mostly based on our past.

The past is just what happened.

And then it's just what happened after that.

And what did all of that do to me?

How did it make me feel?

Those feelings we experience are real.

Really important to feel your feels.

But it has nothing to do with the reality of what happened.

What happened is simply what objectively happened.

Everything else is a kind of story.

A story we make up.

To help us live with hope.

To help us cope with uncertainty.

What if we realized the "what happened and what I made up about it" is just a big part of the game of being human?

We'd be free.
