      There are two wolves within me. One’s like “chill out, everything will be okay,” and the other’s like “Here’s a meticulous 30-step plan to create the exact outcome you want”

      Same, Ava... same.

      As I changed, my perspective changed.

      Loneliness comes from being unable to communicate things that seem important. I am overwhelmed by the impossibility of articulating the truth, knowing that the truth is subject to change, just as sounds in language shift gradually over time, eroded by usage itself, so that what was once correct is no longer correct. Fallibilism seems like the only tenable philosophical position. I still want to believe that anything that can be thought can be thought clearly. I want to think things through the best I can and write my observations down. When everything seems unbearably precarious, I remind myself not to panic the same way I remind myself not to panic when my backpack gapes open and everything spills out and I get on my knees to shove it back in. The antidote is slowing way down. The antidote is, quite simply, to pay more attention.
