  1. Can We Become Uncynical?

    I’m back at this unhappy thing again.


    Today I had an awful day.

    Bad day aside, I can’t help but ask this question. I’ve not really ever had an easy time, to be honest. I’ve had monster family issues that came around when I was an early teen, a difficult childhood, and close family members who had their own nightmare before I was even born. I haven’t exactly had the easiest time.

    At the same time, I don’t want to be cynical. I feel myself getting there, of course. In the back of my mind today, I thought…should I just learn to suck up these awful experiences¬†I have throughout the day? I think that’s where cynical people start…it’s this thought that this is all we have and there is no way out. And that’s when the scowl deepens. The frown lines and the sadness hardens.

    Can you become uncynical? Is that possible?
