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.

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
