    You’re a Miracle (and a Pain in the Ass)

Science has shown that we’re not totally in control of our own thoughts and decisions: a whole bunch of competing impulses, emotions, and environmental factors play into our choices. Ultimately, even the “negative” emotions are key to thriving, and there is a path to self-understanding that can help us do better.
