F*** My Life

I've started reading FML (thanks to a really easy to use iPhone app) and find it simultaneously hilarious and profound. The hilariousness is obvious: I challenge you to read more than 3 of these blurbs without laughing out loud. But...profound?

The thing is, after reading a few dozen of these usually somewhat funny tales of woe, I realized we all have these "oh fuck me" moments. It serves as a useful reminder to be more compassionate of others—and myself—in such situations. I tend to be very hard on myself. Maybe FML will help me remember that I'm not the only one that has those kinds of troubles.

So give F*** My Life a look.

With metta,

FML and TFLN really manage to tap into some kind of more universal experience, and they're definitely hilarious. Sometimes I get taken aback by how casually people referene truly wreckless behavior for mind and body and I take pause; I really hope the profundity makes itself known to all :0)
