As far as you know this is the only world there is

Peanuts

Classic Peanuts characters

I got this from Classic Peanuts comic. It’s funny, yet it has sense (Well, nothing’s funny if sense isn’t present).

Guy: (Monologue) I’m in a bad shape.

Psychologist: Good morning, Sir. Sit right down.
Guy: Fine. I was afraid I might need an appointment.

Guy: What can you do when you don’t fit in? What can you do when life seems to be passing you by?
Psychologist: Follow me. I want to show you something.

Psychologist: (on a hill) See the horizon over there? See how big this world is? See how much room there is for everybody? Have you ever seen any other worlds?
Guy: No.
Psychologist: As far as you know this is the only world there is. Right?
Guy: Right.
Psychologist: There are no other worlds for you to live in. Right?
Guy: Right.
Psychologist: You were born to live in this world. Right?
Guy: Right.
Psychologist: *Yells* WELL, LIVE IN IT, THEN!
Five cents, please.

This reminds me of a line in Desiderata poem:

You are a child of the universe
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
