My dear,

I used to panic about this whole existence thing. No more.

I’ve developed a new philosophy… I only dread one day at a time.

Sure, life is made up of days, and yes, if I worry about enough of them I’ll dread the whole thing through accumulation. Which, being a gradual build-up, is better than imagining the entirety of it all and shrivelling into a human-like cocoon in fear of it all.

You get smaller, less painful, jabs of misery when you focus on the days. I can live with that.

Falsely yours,
Charles “Charlie” Brown
