You know why? Because you can’t read a smile, but you can definitely read a frown, and people do not want to see other people who are young, handsome, beautiful, talented, and making good money acting like they’ve got gigantic problems. Frowning. I mean, you want problems? Go out there into the world; there’s billions of problems. So I’d probably tell myself: never, ever, ever publicly feel sorry about yourself, talk about your terrible upbringing, mope, frown, or complain. I don’t want to hear about it. Start to get involved in other people’s lives. Be supportive of them. Be charitable. That’s the first thing. Serving other people, that’s not only the right thing to do for the world, but it’s the best thing you can do for yourself. I really believe that.
“The fact that we live at the bottom of a deep gravity well, on the surface of a gas covered planet going around a nuclear fireball 90 million miles away and think this to be normal is obviously some indication of how skewed our perspective tends to be.”
