This is a good standard to follow. The average person lives to be about 75 years old. So if you’re less than 38 and have more than half of your life left, the odds are that, for instance, the funniest joke you’ll ever hear in your life is one you haven’t heard yet. It’s just statistics. Odds are you also haven’t yet
…met the girl/boy you’ll love the most;
…met your best friend;
…heard your favorite album;
…started the best job you’ll ever have;
…read the best book;
…seen the best movie or played the coolest video game;
…found the hobby you’re most interested in;
…had the best sex;
…had the most original, mind-blowing idea;
…met the dumbest person you’ll ever meet;
…or seen the stupidest haircut.
You can make your own list. Look around your room, look around your life. If you’re less than 38, the sheer odds are that the future holds a more awesome version of everything you see. You’ve got to weigh all of that shit. You’re not really even conscious of your life until age 7 or 8, so to decide it’s all bullshit after just ten or fifteen more years is like judging a movie by its poster.
I told my mom that my grandfather ate the shrimp but the package was not opened. My grandfather called me a fat ass. really? I tried to defend myself but I get yelled at not too. I walked away. I’m sick of walking away and faking a smile.
