There is no point treating a depressed person as though she were just feeling sad, saying, ‘There now, hang on, you’ll get over it.’ Sadness is more or less like a head cold- with patience, it passes. Depression is like cancer.
There are wounds that never show on the body that are deeper and more hurtful than anything that bleeds.
If you’re lonely when you’re alone, you’re in bad company.
The worst part of holding the memories is not the pain. It’s the loneliness of it. Memories need to be shared.
Let me tell you this: if you meet a loner, no matter what they tell you, it’s not because they enjoy solitude. It’s because they have tried to blend into the world before, and people continue to disappoint them.
You were given life; it is your duty (and also your entitlement as a human being) to find something beautiful within life, no matter how slight.
You need to learn how to select your thoughts just the same way you select your clothes every day. This is a power you can cultivate. If you want to control things in your life so bad, work on the mind. That’s the only thing you should be trying to control.
