34: Being Cynical

Throughout my life, I've been told that being too cynical, negative or jaded is "bad" or that I should be "more happy." All of that is bullsh*t. I've struggled with being a cynic for my entire life and I think it's finally time to accept that it's okay, and that I, like many of you, …
