- The true measurement of self-worth is not how a person feels about their positive experiences, but how they feel about their negative experiences.
2. Who you are is defined by what you’re willing to struggle for.
3. A more interesting question, a question that most people never consider is, “What pain do you want in your life? What are you willing to struggle for?”
Because that seems to be a greater determinant of how our lives turn out.
4. We Like the idea that we can alleviate all of our sufferings permanently. We Like the idea that we can feel fulfilled and satisfied with our lives forever.

Emotions are simply biological signals designed to nudge you in the direction of beneficial change.
6. Happiness comes from solving problems. The keyword here is “Solving”. If you’re avoiding your problems or feel like you don’t have any problems. then you’re going to make yourself miserable.
If you feel like you have problems that you can’t solve, you will likewise make yourself miserable.

11. Most of us struggle throughout our lives by giving t0o many fucks in situations where fucks do not deserve to be given!
12. Everything worthwhile in life is won through surmounting the associated negative experience.
Any attempt to escape the negative, to avoid it or quash it or silence it, only backfires.

And, paradoxically, the acceptance of one’s negative experience is itself a positive experience.
