The older I get, the less certain I am of everything and anything.
I expected the opposite effect growing up.
When I was younger, I was so certain about my decisions, about the world. Even if I knew that I didn’t know everything, I was confident.
Each passing year, I feel less and less confident about what I know, and more and more confident about what I don’t know.
And I don’t say that as a virtue.
I say that as a feeling of unraveling. As if life is not something that can be figured out, that’s it’s a cumulation of choice mixed with chance, and there’s no hedge to it.
