View life as a constant battle. Anticipate your day as drudgery. Expect nothing but incompetence. Curse the day’s demands and consider it your duty to remind everyone you meet of all the negativity that exists in the world. Blame circumstance for indifference. Justify predicament for apathy. Cram your calendar with everything except the things that matter most. Dismiss hopeful outlooks and grateful thanks as insufficient and fantasy-driven. Disregard the possibility of enjoying leisure or exercise. Convince yourself that ‘it must be nice’ for those who do. Deny the fact that some make time for these things and that it requires sacrifice, discipline and planning. Remain feeling victimized and continue to do this day after day after day.
