My religion is the Absurd, so I try to just laugh at things that might otherwise make me bitter, and that has worked well so far. I like to be as sunshiney as possible all of the time, even in the face of cold hard depressing facts. Big deal. Everything goes by quickly--both love and sorrow. Bitterness makes us frown and look bitches, and I find that unattractive in a man, so I definitely don't find it attractive in myself.
