From Bojack Horseman
  1. You’re not alone
  2. You’re trying to get better and that matters the most
  3. Some people will understand but most won’t and that’s okay.
  4. The ones who do will stick around or you’ll find them soon enough
  5. It’s worth the fight. Those days of clarity, of success, of accomplishment will always taste sweeter to us.
