In SciFi stories, space travelers and aliens have access to portals that are shortcuts in time and space. Such portals exist in our minds, bridges to healthier states, but we are not taught to see them. Some people are creative, or fun, or they know how to make others happy. These states are not accidental. If you are unhappy, if your life is constrained, you can gradually free yourself from painful restrictions. The first step on your bridge is to accept spontaneous chances. Try new things without overthinking them. Dare to be as different outside as you are inside. Good things can happen when you are open to them.
