My dear,

Life’s hard. It’s even harder when you’re stupid.

Yet the smartest of us are still struggling with the difficultly of life, same as we are.

So what makes life easier? Maybe we should ask the wise, for while the rest of us frown with the bitter truth of life, they still smile. What’s the secret to their happiness? Maybe we should ask them.

Or maybe we shouldn’t. If they say the answer is to know that life is harsh and come to peace with that harshness, I just wouldn’t know what to do with myself.

Falsely yours,
