Dubium incommodum est.
Certum ridiculum est.
Uncertainty is uncomfortable.
Certainty is ridiculous.
We all want to be comfortable, and we all want to be certain about things in our lives. We want our doubts removed. But the truth is, it’s not possible to ever be 100% certain. Life is always changing, always throwing us a new curve ball at the precise moment we think we’re settled in. (Think of how the seasons change, for example.)
Ben Franklin stated, In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.
We need to accept that we’ll never have full or complete knowledge about what will happen. We must learn to become comfortable with the awkward feeling of dysregulation and disequilibrium.
Spiritual-religious advice: Know that you’ll never have full certainty, and get comfortable with feeling uncertain.
