what is keeping me from slipping further into this hellhole?

what right have I to stop myself from slitting my wrists?

what sort of oxymoronic idea is saving oneself from oneself?

“Okay, so I know I hated it at the time, but I’m really glad I read all that stuff, because now I get things. I see something on TV or someone makes a reference, and I’m like, ‘Oh! I get that!’” One of my freshmen on the first semester of classics:  Odyssey, Oedipus Rex, Gilgamesh, and Othello.   (via girlwithalessonplan)

I really like this answer to the post I just made.

I wrote, Why is it that sometimes the people you love the most make you feel the worst?

and this person responded, Because you hold them so high sometimes, that it’s a far drop down when they let go.

“Let him who cannot be alone beware of community… Let him who is not in community beware of being alone… Each by itself has profound perils and pitfalls. One who wants fellowship without solitude plunges into the void of words and feelings, and the one who seeks solitude without fellowship perishes in the abyss of vanity, self-infatuation and despair.”

Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Life Together: The Classic Exploration of Faith in Community
