Advice from an aged hippie

When your life turns to shit

Wash your arse
Wash your hands
Wash your heart

Think of two million starving children

And get the fuck over yourself !

Concise, and leaves the reader berating themselves, thankyou.

Nothing like putting life in perspective to cleanse the heart.
Love your style!
Thanks for the perspective.

a quick look at google suggests this: approximately 800 million people (adults and children together) go without enough food, or about 13.5 percent of the world population. this is actually down 200 million from the 90's. approximately one out of nine people in the world go to "bed" hungry. in america, where i live, approximately 15 million children do not have a "secure source" of food.

whatever the numbers may be, "get over yourself" is always good advice. i don't know about the "fuck" part, that seems optional.

i've never gone to bed hungry in my life, but my life has gone to "shit" at times. it is not an irreversible condition.

as usual, you write provokingly and thoughtfully.
