control is an illusion anyway, even if it seems for a period of time to work, it eventually breaks down, and control can easily turn into aggression and oppression – how much harm is done in the process?
so we can practice being brave. we can step out of our comfort zones. we can love and do what we can, where we can, when we can, to bring some healing, happiness, and peace. and we can encourage – sometimes strongly encourage – others to do the same.
