“Before the universe there had only been two things. One was Itself and the other was the Turtle,” It remembers at one point. “The Turtle was a stupid old thing that never came out of its shell. It thought that maybe the Turtle was dead, had been dead for the last billion years or so. Even if it wasn’t, was still a stupid old thing, and even if the Turtle had vomited the universe out whole, that didn’t change the fact of its stupidity.”A little like the Boggart from JK Rowling’s Harry Potter s
This can only take you so far, though. Eventually, you will have to find a mentor, someone who’s gone down your path, heard all the negativity and still come out on top.

Extinction is a bitch.Thanks Mr Wait But Why, you are turning me religious….
