Everything and more

Remake Monday. Original posted on 15 November 2013.

While I believe this comic makes a valid point in general, its message clearly doesn't apply to the entirety of the human condition. Sometimes the answer to the first stick figure's question is "yes", unfortunately; for reasons beyond an individual's control, "just turning around" might not be an option (e.g. some mental and physical illnesses, inescapable life circumstances, terrible superglue accidents).
So let me be clear: I, the author, fully and wholeheartedly condemn anyone who tries to invoke this comic to put the burden of "choosing to be happy" (etc.) on anyone to whom that choice is not available.
