Don’t Stockholm Yourself

Yes, you have reason to be afraid. There is comfort in anonymity, because you care about your reputation. You care about what people think of you, and you do what you can to control it. But you suspect that you can’t control it. You know that your enemies are legion and that they will destroy you using the weapons of your own manufacture.

But you’re forgetting that your life isn’t your own. It’s already been taken away, and now you’re pretending that the person with the gun to your head is a merciful benefactor that has the right, and not merely the power, to take it all away from you at any time.

Don’t Stockholm yourself. Don’t live in fear.
