How to ruin your life

Evgeny Lepekhin wrote an anti-thread on how to ruin your life:

I added my two pennies worth to the wisdom:

  • When starting a project, always shoot for the moon — because if you’re not the best at what you do, you don’t matter.
  • Dream of an ideal world. Every time the reality turns out to be different, be sure to get overly emotional.
  • Don’t appreciate yourself for anything you’ve done. Remember: it’s never enough. Never.
  • Deprive yourself of things (and people) you love because you don’t deserve them.
  • Finally, stay where you’ve been born: it defines you now and has to define you for the rest of your life. Also, nobody needs you where you will go.

If I’m honest, these are the mistakes I myself have been making for the most of my life. Don’t think my life’s already ruined, though: at least, I can see them.
