People know your name, not your story.
They’ve heard what you’ve done,
but not what you’ve been through.
So take their opinions of you with a grain of salt.
In the end, it’s not what others think,
it’s what you think about yourself that counts.
Sometimes you have to do
exactly what’s best for you and your life,
not what’s best for everyone else.

“The world is increasingly designed to depress us.
Happiness isn’t very good for the economy.
If we were happy with what we had,
why would we need more?
How do you sell an anti-ageing moisturizer?
You make someone worry about ageing.
How do you get people to vote for a political party?
You make them worry about immigration.
How do you get them to buy insurance?
By making them worry about everything….
To be calm becomes a kind of revolutionary act.
To be happy with your own non-upgraded existence.
To be comfortable with our messy, human selves,
would not be good for business.”
