Misery is optional

There's no escaping from the fact that new things get worn down, no-one will remember you in a hundred years time (10 years if you're lucky), and everything you think you have can be lost very quickly. Take heart though, the misery we experience is optional. I'm not exactly singing and dancing through my particular brand of imperfect life experiences, but they are not who I am, they are just what is happening.

Then we might ask the question, who am I? It's hard to be miserable when we start exploring this for ourselves.
