|CHAPTER 111 But many of you may be wondering, How can I tell when I'm thinking about the right things?
2 What if they're the wrong things,
3 And I wind up making life more difficult for myself,
4 Instead of easier,
5 Which would be just my luck?
6 I'm pleased to tell you, though, that this shouldn't be a problem,
7 At all,
8 Because in spite of everything,
9 Harry gave us an excellent guideline to use,
10 aA guideline called the Trinity of Harry,
11 bWhich consists of Desire, Certainty, and Blame,
12 cAnd is practically tailor-made for our purposes.
CHAPTER 121 dFor example, if you're like me, you don't necessarily know what you want out of life,
2 But you almost always know what you desire,
3 eWhether it's that tasty little number at Saks,
4 fOr a hairdo so ugly and unflattering that none of them will ever try to hit on you,
5 gOr the one absolutely perfect remark to use on that slut who thinks she's just it,
6 hOr someone else's job,
7 Or someone else's ilover,
8 jOr a twenty-carat engagement ring,
9 kOr a twenty-million-dollar estate on the Main Line,
10 lOr revenge,
||11 mOr bigger boobs,
12 nOr a cause you can really sink your teeth into,
13 oOr a title so big and important that you can just look down and laugh at the world,
14 pOr even children.
15 The thing is, it's okay to have desires like these,
16 And good for you too,
17 Which means that there's no reason to feel guilty about having them,
18 qAnd no reason not to just reach out and grab the object of your desire,
19 No matter who gets hurt.
CHAPTER 131 rYou see, it's about time we gave up all the softness and sensitivity and passivity and patience they wished on us about a million years ago,
2 Because look what it got us,
3 sWhich is not much,
4 Not to mention the fact that there's just not enough time left to be coy about anything.
5 That's why it's so important to remember the part about tCertainty,
6 Which always came easily to us anyway,
7 And makes everything a lot simpler,
8 Especially when you don't have to hide your feelings anymore.
9 uStop trying to see the other side,
10 And making allowances,
11 And holding back because someone you've never met might not approve,
12 vAnd biting your tongue because some idiot in your life would definitely not approve.
