There are times when I think I should just have a lobotomy and get it over with. That way I could make everyone happy, do everything their way and not care if I no longer had a thought or idea of my own.
Those days don’t come as often as they used to.
I think a better plan is to expect good things and don’t be discouraged when everything isn’t good. You need disappointments to make the really good stuff stand out.
Better yet, just ignore everything and go along as if none of it ever happened. I do that a lot. Just leave the mess and aggravation until I get to the point where I have to deal with it. You can always trust it not to go away after all. That doesn’t mean you have to dwell on it every hour of every day. There are times when you’re just enjoying the night sky, taking a hot shower or driving somewhere. Why spoil all the everyday good things just to cram in more time worrying about things you can’t deal with right in that moment? Give yourself some space to enjoy life. It’s not all bad.
