The following list must be carefully followed if you wish to be miserable:
- Think about yourself and what you are going through.
- Talk mostly about yourself when having a conversation with others.
- Use “I” as often as possible. This is great for your ego, but nothing else.
- Mirror yourself continually with what the “know-it-all” talking heads on TV say.
- Listen greedily to what people say about your “toys”.
- Expect to be appreciated for just about everything you do.
- Be suspicious of anyone who thinks or acts differently than you do.
- Be jealous and envious of family and friends who are doing better than you.
- Be sensitive to slights and don’t hold back on using four-letter words.
- Never forgive a criticism. Dwell upon how bad the other person is.
- Trust nobody but yourself. That’s the message we are all getting today.
- Insist on consideration and respect for what you SAY and not for what you DO.
- Demand agreement with your own views on everything. Only you see things clearly.
- Sulk if people are not grateful to you for favors shown them. Time is money.
- Never forget a service you have rendered. Remind people over and over.
- Shirk your duties if you can. You can always blame it on the pandemic.
- Do as little as possible for others. It’s the American way of life today.
WE EITHER MAKE OURSELVES MISERABLE OR WE MAKE OURSELVES STRONG.
THE AMOUNT OF WORK IS THE SAME.
TO LOVE ANOTHER PERSON IS TO SEE THE FACE OF GOD!
