"There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened."

Ask yourself — be frank — what’s the reward you get for being sad and insecure? Do you get extra attention from the people who try to fix or rescue you? Do you get to opt out of big goals and scary commitments? Consider that those rewards ( pay-offs ) are nothing compared to the joy of moving forward. I give you permission to be sad and insecure for one more week.

Anonymous said: I'm depressed all the time. What do you do to stop yourself from being depressed?
Choose a huge impossible goal and make it happen. Stop being what George Bernard Shaw referred to as ‘a clod of grievances demanding that the world devote itself to making you happy’ ( my best paraphrase ) A giant self-imposed challenge will give you purpose and take you out of your head.
Whenever I’m between books, I’m as miserable as you.
