Defying Despair

There is nothing like despair to make your life unbearable. The trick to dealing with it is to force yourself to take some token opposition to whatever it is in the universe you find so overwhelming. Often that very act of defiance will give you some more energy for some more acts of defiance, in a virtual circle. I find so often the universe behaves as if I had some key rôle in fomenting major changes. The illusion is created when thousands of other despairing people also make a token gesture. Integrated together these insignificant gestures become a tsunami.
