I am an invisible man. No, I am not a spook like those who haunted Edgar Allan Poe; nor am I one of your Hollywood movie ectoplasms. I am a man of substance of flesh and bone, fiber and liquids— and I might even said to possess a mind. I am invisible; understand, simply because people refuse to see me. Like the bodiless heads you see sometimes in circus sideshows, it is as though I have been surrounded by hard, distorting glass. When they approach me they see only my surroundings, themselves, or figments of their imagination— indeed, everything and anything except me.
Nor is my invisibility exactly a matter of a bio-chemical accident to my epidermis. That invisibility to which I refer occurs because of a peculiar disposition of the eyes of those with whom I come in contact. A matter of the construction of their inner eyes, those eyes with which they look through their physical eyes upon reality. I am not complaining, nor am I protesting either. It is sometimes advantageous to be unseen, although it is most often rather wearing on the nerves. Then too, you’re constantly being bumped against by those of poor vision. Or again, you often doubt of you really exist. You wonder whether you aren’t simply a phantom in other people’s minds. Say, a figure in a nightmare which the sleeper tried with all his strength to destroy. It’s when you feel like this that, out of resentment, you begin to bump people back. And, let me confess, you feel that way most of the time. You ache with need to convince yourself that you do exist in the real world, that you’re part of all the sound and anguish, and you strike out with your fists, you curse and swear to make them recognize you. And, alas, it’s seldom successful. (309 words)
Your thoughts can be your best friend and worst enemy. Have you ever noticed that if you find yourself thinking even a single negative thought, it inevitably spirals out of control until you have a nasty chorus of Mental Monsters taking over your brain? If you find yourself thinking, “I feel so lonely right now,” it’s easy to keep that thought process going in the wrong direction until thoughts like, “I will always be alone,” or “no one will ever love me,” creep up on you.
Be aware of what you’re thinking about and stop your negative thoughts before they grow into Mental Monsters that are much harder to control. If you find yourself stressing out, do something that relaxes you. Light some candles or incense, take a nice hot bubble bath, perform some gentle yoga poses, or play soothing music.
Being aware of world events is totally okay, but becoming addicted to the news is a sure-fire way to sink your mood. Limit your news consumption to a small handful of articles per day because there is no reason to bury yourself in depressing news stories for hours on end.
Watching television is fine in moderation, but spending all of your free hours in front of the tube wHI do nothing to help you grow or feel better. Read a classic novel you adored in high school, go to a local community theater to enjoy a racy comedy or Shakespearean tragedy, and exercise at least every other day to keep your mind and body at the top of their game.

我对孤独有着切身体会：一人一室一狗，少有陪伴。许多朋友都 搬到了其他城市，结婚生子过日子，有些也因生活变迁而失去了联系。 我自认为是个独行侠，刚开始也很享受平和与安静；可接下来几个月， 我发现自己常常感到孤独。
房间开始变得凌乱不堪、效率低下、情绪低落，除了在Netflix上 看电影，我对任何事都提不起兴趣。过了几个月的混沌日子后，我感 到自己很有问题，必须学会一个人也能过得开心才行。
一个人生活时，很容易马虎应付房间整理。如果得过且过，家里 很快就堆了成叠的盘子和杂物。哪怕很少有室友或朋友来串门，每周 至少也得打扫一次房间。
觉得自己的世界毫无美好可言？那你肯定没用心发掘。当你独自 蜗居在家、感到心情抑郁时，何不出门多接触大自然？看小鸟掠过天 空，感叹它们高超的飞翔技术；听邻里狗儿相互吠叫，猜测“这些家 伙都在讨论暗？ ” (347 words)
