Life Hack for Overcoming Depression: Beware of middle age

best-books-for-mystics-16

From a story I’m working on:

“I didn’t have any profound thoughts while spending time alone this week. I must be numb. Or maybe I’m just getting old and, for lack of a better cliché, a little jaded.

I think this is the very beginning of middle age. I never thought it would happen to me.”

The speaker in this quote, Francie, is right to be worried.

Middle age happens to everyone who gets old enough.

And so does mediocrity.

And actually, that’s okay. Sort of. At some point, we all realize that we can’t do all the things and be all the things we used to want to do and be.

It’s just that some of us give up a little more thoroughly than others.

So, my happiness tip of the day: know what is okay to give up and what is not. Then hang on to the things that are not as tightly as you can.

Hopefully you’ll find that those are the things that will make you most happy in the end.
