amongst the advice about how to keep young, some of which was lovely, there was this bit:
Keep only cheerful friends – the grouches pull you down.
and I’m wondering – if everyone were to follow this advice, who would be left to show love to the grouches? who would be there to help lift their spirits? if everyone followed this advice, I would have remained a grouch forever.
so no, don’t keep only cheerful friends – don’t be so selfish. take some of the joy you have and go share it with the nearest grouch. they need it.
