Anxiety amplifies the world around me. It twists things, creates monsters out of thin air, convinces me that shadows shouldn't exist. It places me in the middle of the ocean, the reason for the ripples that eventually become waves. .
Responsibility, accountability, are of paramount importance to me, but there is a line I need to teach myself not to cross. I am only able to control myself and my actions, beyond that I have no power. I cannot change the actions of others, their thoughts and feelings exist at an untouchable distance, I need to remember that.
Don't apologize for the things you cannot change.
