Here’s the thing. Yes, it is hard out there. But hard is relative. I come from a middle-class family, my parents are academics, I was born after the civil rights movement, I was a toddler during the women’s movement, I live in the United States of America, all of which means I’m allowed to own my freedom, my rights, my voice, and my uterus; and I went to Dartmouth and I earned an Ivy League degree.

The lint in my navel that accumulated while I gazed at it as I suffered from feeling lost about how hard it was to not feel special after graduation … that navel lint was embarrassed for me.

Elsewhere in the world, girls are harmed simply because they want to get an education. Slavery still exists. Children still die from malnutrition. In this country, we lose more people to handgun violence than any other nation in the world. Sexual assault against women in America is pervasive and disturbing and continues at an alarming rate.

So yes, tomorrow may suck for you—as it did for me. But as you stare at the lint in your navel, have some perspective. We are incredibly lucky.

  • Brad Stand: What's so great about depression?
  • Bernard Jaffe: Nothing. Unless it holds the key to something you compulsively avoid, so it will never be examined or felt. Hence your behavior becomes repetitive like the story.

"And you look up to the camera as if it’s someone that you really care about, not like it’s a camera."

"Mondays are fine. It’s your life that sucks."

"In this country, we’re told that success is making money and being well known, and therefore being loved and admired and happy. But that’s not the way life works, and Willy’s tragedy is that he never stops believing that it is. All you really have is the day or the night, or the lunch with a friend, or maybe a couple of hours where you’re working well. To me, that’s success—if you can put together some moments that actually go well, that give you something you can hang your hat on having to do with work that you’ve created. You’re not going to feel any better than that. That’s as good as it gets."

Loser talk

I don’t know how it went from “do a test and objectively prove you know your shit” to “think of hypothetical examples and talk up how good you are”, or am I the only chump still in denial about how the workplace works?
