Why do so many people try to live with “mediocre madness”?
It is horribly contagious.
It is a killer.
It is a disease that infects the entire body.
One begins to settle for less and the madness sets in.
It affects the brain, which affects the heart.
Once the heart is diseased, little, outside of a transplant, can be done.
How to prevent “mediocre madness”?
