You are not special. You do not have any inherent worth. Statistically speaking you are unexceptional and mediocre. You are not original. You are not the biggest, smartest sexiest, fastest, most original, most creative, useful, strongest, or most interesting.
It’s not fair. You do not have a profound and undiscovered inner worth. God is not watching out for you. Everything will not be allright. You’ve been dying since the day you were born. You are a mere bacterium on a speck of dust in the universe, and the best you can hope for is ambivalence.
There are malignant forces moving against you even as we speak. The sun will burn out, a meteor may hit the earth, lightning can strike. Earthquakes, drowning, fire, famine, and toxic epoxy can you strike you down in a moment.
There are tiny living things everywhere that would like nothing better than to get inside you and make you lunch. Even now your body is fighting an inevitably losing battle against them. If they don’t get you first your very body will betray you with cancer, stroke, heart attack, or arhtritis, dementia, calcium defficiency or hypoglycemia.
Your own mind is unreliable and will also betray you with hallucinations, failed memory, cognitive lapse, senility or psychiatric illness, and you won’t even know!
Trust know one! Your underlings are jealous, and your superiors fearful. Lots of people are better off than you, but lots aren’t. You’re next in somebody’s sights as the scramble their way up as far as they can manage.
They want your stuff. They want your wife. They want your kid. They want your food, your job, your car, your hair, your watch, your office, your internal organs, your energy,m your soul, and your dirty underwear. They will stop at nothing to get it. No matter how bad you think you have it, lots ofg people have it worse and they’re all eying you jealousy.
You have only one chance! Keep moving! Stay ahead. Don’t stop. Be tougher. You can do it. Overcome. Outlast. Fight fight fight! Go down swinging! Die with your boots one. Don’t give up! Don’t complain.
Look inside. Somewhere is that animal sounding it’s joyful roar of fear and pain. Listen to it! It knows what it’s talking about. Make an alliance. Fall in love. Trust a peer. Promote common ethics that you can afford to have.
Don’t look back. Never back up. They’re right behind you.
And they’re hungry!
I thought you should know.
