Some things are beyond your control, no matter how you want to orchestrate them the way you want them to be. And in these moments, the next best thing you can do is to adjust your point of view and let go of your frustration. It doesn’t mean that you don’t have to feel anything. It’s okay to feel. But be wary that you’re not carried away by it, lest you burn bridges you wouldn’t have if you only are sober.
Letting go is hard, especially when you have coddled the idea for quite a long time and have grown familiar with it. But isn’t a shattered ego better than a tainted reputation?
