They say that a problem well stated is a problem half-solved. Not when the problem is outward in nature. I have identified exactly what makes me miserable and it hasn't brought me an inch closer to its solution. It couldn't get any darker and there's no dawn in sight, no miracle on the horizon to save the day. Miracles only come to fictional characters.

"God never gives you more than you can handle."

Lately I get the feeling that I might be one of the exceptions that prove the rule. I am tough but am I that tough?

The moral of “The beauty and the beast” is that people learn only the hard way and you can get the idea of kindness into their heads only if you hit them with a brick. Which is all there is to know about human nature.

Why worry about the future when the present is terrible enough as it is?

Funny how there's always a stone in your shoe. Right now I have a whole set.

I wish my father was at least half as smart as he thinks he is. Few things appall me more than self-righteous people.

I feel optimistic about the future and the reason might be the hope that the worst is already behind. I don't ask much from the future: my family to be in good health (pets including, of course), steady job (and paychecks), a concert now and then. That's pretty much about it. “Every day is exactly the same” and lately I started to appreciate that. It's not anymore about what I could gain but more about what I could lose. Not to lose what is precious to me is already a win.
