*But also go to therapy
4. Drink water.
6. Everyone is just trying their best. People don’t (usually) try to be a bad person. Chaotic evil or really any evil characters don’t really exist. The only characters with believable evil alignments are monsters. Try thinking of this when dealing with an annoying waitress or someone who cut you off in traffic. They’re all trying their best in the wider scheme of their life.
7. Accepting your own mortality. Now this one is a bit more intense and probably overused, and I would have rolled my eyes a year ago too. BUT, I had an ‘uh-huh’ moment. In the scheme of your life and the broader context of the universe, failing your torts exam doesn’t really mean anything.
8. Ask for your sushi to be cut up. I deleted number eight because I didn’t like it anymore and asked my family what the best piece of advice they were ever given was. This is what I was given. Daniel said that he never knew he wanted his sushi cut up until he tried it. I’m not really sure what the takeaway is, but family is pretty great for a laugh and trying new things is pretty cool too.
9. It really is a lonely existence without animals. I recently house sat for two months in a beautiful house that had no animals and it was really depressing. Animals really do help.
10. Write a piece for De Minimis. It makes you feel important and like you’ve achieved something.
