So you’re human. Somehow, out of the cosmic soup of time and space you ended up in charge of a human body and a human mind. Surely you never asked for these dubious responsibilities, but you’re stuck with them.
As a human being, you are a beautiful, powerful, and supremely ridiculous creature. Your mind and body may not be perfect, but they do make you an astoundingly potent being.
Ideally, you’d take full advantage, and use these priceless gifts to achieve glorious triumphs, experience great loves and adventures, fulfill your dreams and leave the world better than how you found it.
But it’s so hard. We can only do what we know, and often the results are uninspiring. We end up with careers we don’t like, goals that have slowly become idle fantasies, feelings of lack and regret that won’t leave us alone, even disdain for human beings in general. Some fare even worse than that, and find themselves drowning in debt, poor health, depression, and addiction.
