These days, one bad piece of news can throw me off the scent. Things seem to have so much weight. This tells me my perspective has shifted from that of a young person to that of someone in middle age. I don't think this is inescapable. Nor do I think one can go back. There is a sense that one must go from the youthful mantra of try, try, try until you get it to something more nuanced, something more appreciative: try, keep trying, when trying doesn't work, stop trying. This can be a very positive and confident adjustment.
