Some problems in life are as insurmountable as mountains, while other problems are mere molehills. Unfortunately, it's easy to mix the two up. Here's a look at which problems are massive mountains and which are minuscule molehills:
The Problem: You forgot to eat breakfast.
Mountain or Molehill? MOUNTAIN. Today is the first day of the rest of your life, and breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Thus, today's breakfast was the most important meal of your life. You must quit your job so you have more time to worry about not making this mistake again.
The Problem: None of your friends like you anymore.
Mountain or Molehill? MOLEHILL. You can always make new friends by going to a crowded area, such as a farmer's market or city council meeting, and crying softly until everyone is paying attention to you.
The Problem: Shoes are untied.
Mountain or Molehill? MOUNTAIN. Your untied shoes loudly broadcast that you are a failure. You are not deserving of respect or affection. Tying the shoes now will make no difference—your life would be ruined already, except that you can't ruin something worthless.
The Problem: The law of entropy means the universe will one day be cold, motionless, and devoid of life.
Mountain or Molehill? MOLEHILL. Who cares? You’ll be long dead before that happens!
