Whenever I get to feeling like this, one of my go-to pick-me-ups is Rudyard Kipling's Poem, "If." There's a version of it read by Michael Caine. The bit that gets me is:

"If you can meet with triumph and disaster,
"And treat those two imposters just the same;"

World history teacher in high school made everyone memorize and recite this poem as a hw assignment. He'd stop you somewhere and ask you to explain the last sentence you just said. Great man, great teacher, great poem.

"Nothing makes me question ALL of my life decisions like SVTP."

Some guys I've known who were thinking of doing themselves in went on a giant bender instead. While on it they never answered emails.

Others who just went and finished themselves also didn't answer their emails.

Maybe cut him some slack on the email answering. He might be busy.

Maybe he’s wearing his mask and getting the vaccine?
