Letting Go


Depression

“That’s the thing about depression:  A human being can survive almost anything, as long as she sees the end in sight.  But depression is so insidious, and it compounds daily, that it’s impossible to ever see the end.  The fog is like a cage without a key.”

~Elizabeth Wurtzel–Prozac Nation


Love

“The only obsession everyone wants: ‘love.’   People think that in falling in love they make themselves whole? The Platonic union of souls?  I think otherwise.  I think you’re whole before you begin.  And the love fractures you.  You’re whole, and then you’re cracked open.”


Changes

“All changes, even the most longed for, have their

melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another.”


Choices

You’ve got two choices in life – accept conditions as they exist, or or accept the responsibility for changing them.


“I was never one to patiently pick up broken fragments and glue them together again and tell myself that the mended whole was as good as new. What is broken is broken — and I’d rather remember it as it was at its best than mend it and see the broken pieces as long as I lived.”

Depression

“If depression is creeping up and must be faced,

learn something about the nature of the beast: You may escape without a mauling.”
