A lot of us have spent a lot of time in therapy in order to get rid of our abnegation, self-hatred and all that sort of thing, but we don’t have any problem projecting it onto the human race as a whole.

That’s really the next step. We need to group therapy, and I’m talking big group therapy, in order to do some of the work collectively many of us have done individually, and actually say, “Hey this is a great life!”

There are problems and there is deep suffering in all of our lives, and there is abject suffering for some people in the world, so let’s get busy and work with that, but lets not forget that this is an astonishing gift to be alive on this planet at this time, astonishing, and it is irresponsible not to be grateful. ~Jeff Salzman
