There is a popular sixties song titled “Cast your fate to the wind”. This popular song speaks of a man who simply lives his life as a sailor on a boat, who allows the wind to take him wherever it may. A verse of this song goes like this:
“You shift your course along the breeze
Won’t sail up wind on memories
The empty sky is your best friend
And you just cast your fate to the wind”
This seems to be the motto of many today. I can especially see this view having much relevance in mental health. Though I disagree with the overall premise of this song, I see how its ideology can help those struggling with anxiety. You may be wondering; how can you disagree while also agreeing? I answer that by saying that I don’t think that the concept is utterly wrong, rather than a cheap counterfeit.
