The (In)Significant Paradox

You are special. The fact that you are alive is a miracle. Your problems are real and they matter.

Meanwhile:

You are 1 out of 7.5 billion people. Your problems, as big as they seem, are pretty inconsequential.

So:

Will you keep that upbeat attitude that comes with feeling special and important? You should. Will you keep problem-solving? Of course.

Will you get worked up when things don’t go your way or when life is harder than it should be? No.

It’s hard to believe that in a world thiiiiiis big,

our problems are reeeeeally reeeeeally  small.
