“I wonder if that’s how darkness wins, by convincing us to trap it inside ourselves, instead of emptying it out. I don’t want it to win.”
— My Heart and Other Black Holes, Jasmine Warga
Somedays I feel that it helps to talk positively, and that the act of saying happy words will make us happier, like how holding a pencil in our mouth will make us smile for real. Other times I feel the need to speak sad words and have a shoulder to cry on. Perhaps unspoken words hurt the most.
My Heart and Other Black Holes is an amazing book about depression and suicide. If you have an interest in mental health, this is a must read.
