Question: Is it easier to get what you want, or to stop wanting what you can’t get? So far in my life I’ve tried to take the latter course, out of a cowardly reluctance to enter into any battle I’m not sure of winning. But I’m forced to admit that it hasn’t worked. I just DO want things I don’t have, dammit! So the only authentic course is to follow the first option and strive to get the things you want. You may, of course, fail to get them.
