Sometimes, even if you know you are spiraling down a path that you didn’t expect to go in, it’s best to ride the spiral. If you hold back, if you keep feeling regret and remorse during and, even worse, anticipating the future regret, it can ruin everything.
What if instead, you just let yourself spiral a little? Just let yourself… be human? It’s not going to be perfect. Nothing will be. But at least you’re letting yourself do it your way.
“A word of advice: Play along. The more you fight it, the worse it’s gonna get. It’s like when your car slides on ice, you steer into the skid.” — Ted Mosby
