Something that has always stuck with me was Conan’s farewell speech when he was leaving The Tonight Show. Towards the end, he says “Please don’t be cynical. I hate cynicism - it’s my least favorite quality and it doesn’t lead anywhere.”
I think about that whenever I see people on tumblr being really cynical. Maybe they confuse cynicism with skepticism but they come across as unpleasant, corrosive people who are exhausting to be around. I have been feeling really depressed lately and I will probably unfollow your ugly, misanthropic garbage tumblr because I don’t need such negativity in my life.
