The Paleo of self-improvement
I have been trying to be less aggrieved in life. But it's so hard! Why is it always me who has to deal with these unreasonable difficulties!
So I decided I needed an incentive. What if I found some other personal fault of mine, I don't know, like vanity or something, and allowed myself to indulge that vice as much as possible. It could be kind of like the Keto Diet of self-improvement. Instead of cutting out sugar and bread but getting to eat all the meat I want, I'd be cutting out my wounded sense of being unfairly persecuted but getting to be as much of an egomaniac as I can possibly want.
I'm happier already. It's the best idea anyone has ever had.
