Anything that'll make the day a little more real and a lot more positive gets my vote.

If you can't be brutally honest with yourself there is no room to change.

A nurse told me they were taught to sing Happy Birthday to themselves when washing their own hands... that's long enough, I suppose

I don’t think this boarders outside the original. But what percentage of people are really honest with themselves? I would tend to believe you could treat suicide statistics as about the same. Happy little lies and assurances keep The World spinning. Seeking hope in a world of pure truth requires faith. Assumed Truth, faith, Religion, media, educational system.. all provide their own version of “Truth”. Do I believe in honesty...? No. The great majority of all Societies are based on one sided history, and convincing lies that makes a population of nearly 8,000,000,000 human beings; docile, convenient and controllable. So.. no.. Nobody ever wants to be completely honest with themselves. Simply happy.
