One way to stop taking myself so damn seriously is to contemplate how transient I am. I may not even exist, or I may be in a simulation.
Which allows me to focus on what I truly want to do–free of dogma, hangups, societal pressures–and give it my all. Because I’ll be gone and forgotten soon enough (if I was ever really here.)
In my opinion, not thinking about “who I am” is one of the most liberating, empowering states of mind I could possibly tap.
