Cool read.

I feel like that a lot as well. It's a hard thing to keep the gift of being able to think in perspectives, but try to get rid of the burdens.

Particularly bad is that this way of living means you avoid new contexts where you don't have a good understanding of how to behave in or how you might be perceived. Just because your control might be at risk. And that's a lot of missed opportunities.

Its a hard pill to swallow for intellectual types when your life might be better with less awareness.

At least it's the one thing people seem to universally get better at while getting older.
