Today and every day, I find solace in the fact that I am insignificant. 1 of 7 billion, in 1 solar system of billions, in 1 galaxy of billions, in an entirely endless universe of amazing and unimaginable possibilities. I could ruin my life and do nothing, but in the scale of things, nothing really matters. If I mess up, it makes no difference. And in a backwards way, I love it. It means I have nothing to lose. This realization has helped me find the courage to make difficult decisions and take calculated risks. It’s one of the primary reasons my web start-up is going to make over six figures this year.

Its refreshing to see that you've made those decisions solely because of how you view yourself, rather than how you view yourself in comparison to others. Congratulations and all the best!

Thank you, Max, for your words of wisdom. I've been going through a rough time and I find that your perspective on life brings me solace, too. If nothing matters, then I can do anything, and that's just what I'll do.

I hate that this site is full of dopes so your beautiful, inspiring perspective is downvoted. But it doesn't matter. It's not worth being upset over because we only have so long to think, feel, experience, live.
