It’s a test for which we can’t prepare. A test that asks questions that we don’t know how to answer. And worst of all, we absolutely have no idea when it’ll be over! But we have to take it! Not once, not twice, but countless times.
It’s unlike any other test we’ve taken, the harder we try to answer its questions, the harder it gets.
It’s painful because of how uncertain it makes us feel. The ground is shaking beneath us and it’s getting darker but we have no choice but to take each step believing that it’s bound to be over and that we’re surely seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.
As counterintuitive as this may sound, for us to ace the test of waiting, we need to drop the pen and stop trying to ace it.
