Today is the day I discovered Sturgeon’s law:
I like this for a lot of reasons. But most of all, I like it as a nudge to try harder to enjoy things.
Think you hate poetry? Roller coasters? Banjo music? Thai food? Maybe you haven’t discovered the good 10% yet. Keep looking.
Then there’s relationships. Think there’s no one out there who can make you happy? Maybe you haven’t climbed out of your 90% of crappy relationships yet. Keep looking.
It reminds me of a quote I read recently:
Keep your identity small. “I’m not the kind of person who does things like that” is not an explanation, it’s a trap. It prevents nerds from working out and men from dancing.Conor Barnes
Remember: strong opinions, loosely held. If you think you hate something, hold that opinion loosely by putting it to the test. Try to prove it false.
Don’t be so quick to accept that something is not for you. Keep looking.
