Right, that sounds totally reasonable. Just… never have a negative thought, and when you do, immediately suppress it and replace it with something vague and totally happy!

Okay, maybe this was written by Kerouac, but that doesn’t make it less like a piece of advice that a spoiled 13-year-old would give you. Never be sorry? Alright, we’ll see how many friends and jobs you’re left with by age 30.
