Kiwi

“You know what’s the problem with kiwi? The skin — it’s rough, ugly, a pain in the ass to peel, and if you leave some on and accidentally eat some, it tastes pretty nasty. The fruit, now that’s pretty fantastic, and it’s worth the effort. But you’re not one to put in that effort, are you? You’ll eat kiwi if it’s already peeled, but not if it’s you that has to deal with the skin. And that’s how you look on life in general, isn’t it? If something inconveniences you in the least, you act as if you’ve been condemned to peel kiwi skin. Why not approach the task with some type of anticipation — enjoy the act of peeling the skin, knowing that you’ll get to enjoy the fruit within. That’s the problem with seeing life in your absolute terms. If you don’t get immediate pleasure from what you’re doing, you lose interest. All I’m saying is try something different. You say you’re not happy, life hasn’t worked out for you — take a different approach, and see what happens.”
