Relaxed anons, how do I loosen up? How do I stop being a control freak and trying to have power that I obviously don't have over everything around me?

How do you get over the fear of letting go entirely?

I recommend this:

Should be able to find a torrent or a copy at a used bookstore. Basically rehashed Buddhism but it really puts things into perspective.

Take LSD
Not even kidding.
Part of the trip is the ego death.
Where your identity stops mattering.

It's been shown to help PTSD. Surely it'll help you

Problem is I'm scared to death of doing that
What if my body does something weird while I'm gone? I'd be okay with it if I had a buddy to do it with, but I'm so self-absorbed and manipulative I can't even make real friends.

Alternative: Read absurdist literature.

You don't matter.
Better laugh at it.

I recommend Vonnegut.
Cat's Cradle and The Sirens of Titan are my favourites.

Remember that in our universe, individual actions don't and cannot change anything.
