“Four Difficult Ways to Simplify Your Life (That Are Worth It)”

at Cracked–I related a lot to #1, Ratty has talked about #2, and there’s even an emerging-adult angle in #4!

Eventually I realized that none of the most positive moments in my life were centered on how angry I was at someone or something. I figured out that when I showed off photographs from some great party or some important milestone day in my life to friends, I didn’t point out all of the people who weren’t there because we were on bad terms at the time. I learned that none of my favorite anecdotes started with “I was still not speaking to [random person] when I went on [crazy adventure].” None of my greatest memories were made greater by the absence of people I was feuding with based on some perceived slight.
