Regardless of whatever activity you're engaged in (really, it doesn't matter what it is for you, you probably have something you feel deeply about), instant nitpicking of the "this was only a battle the war is huge and unwon and we all have possibly eternal struggle ahead" is. Not. Helpful. As Woody Harrelson said in Zombieland, "Enjoy the little things in life".
Thanks for this post, ursulav.
