I love you,
You could think of belief in a positive afterlife as the ultimate form of delayed gratification.
Which is not a bet I would personally take.
Marketing wishes you to mistake pleasure for happiness.
And by this, I repeat what thousands have said before me:
Ephemeral pleasure cannot yield enduring wellbeing
At best it is a distraction from your pain.
Since there is no you
(…unless you want there to be)
There is no need to take anything personally
(…unless you want to).
Live your life like it matters
Even if it doesn’t.
Because the only thing that really matters is that you think it does;
That will be more than enough.
