                "Life is the saddest thing in the world,

                  but to tell you the truth, it's beautiful."

A few years ago, I was talking to a friend of mine who runs a curio shop, and he told me he wakes up every morning and repeats, out loud, "Truth is beautiful." He does it in Hindi, but then he's from India. He says he does it until the sleep is out of him and he is smiling. Because, he said, you can't help but smile when you say "Truth is beautiful" out loud. I tried it, and he's right.
It took a couple years for me to stop thinking about suicide every morning. Eventually it was replaced with more mundane stuff about what each day might bring and what I might do with it. I went from starting each day with tears and a hollow gut to starting each day with equanimity.
Now I wake up each morning and say, "Truth is beautiful," until I smile. Yes, I was much happier when I could see two smiles each morning, one little and one big, but I can't. I have to be satisfied with my own

If you feel like life's not worth living, please wait a while longer.

No matter how bad things are, they will go away eventually. Please wait.
