There's this song where the guy is like, "I'd still sell my soul / For a little bit of money / And some self-control."
<figure class="embed"> <iframe frameborder="0" scrolling="no" allowfullscreen="" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/mbZmoUG2wcc"></iframe> </figure> <p>I think that's a brilliant lyric, and I think of it often lately. A little money and a little self-control go a long way, I figure. </p><p>In the end, we're all just here, trying to claw our way forward, doing our best, maybe. </p><p>But maybe some aren't doing their best. Is that the problem? Oh, probably not. </p><p>The trick is to not get overly invested in outcomes. </p><p>Just roll the dice and hope to survive to the next round. </p><p>Demanding or expecting much more than that will get you rekt, ultimately.</p><p>There's just no reason to hold on to nonsense. </p>
