It’s OK to be in your comfort zone. You don’t have to leave it if you don’t want to. Being safe and comfy is very important in this world, so don’t let some jackass put you down for being there. You’re doing fabulous and everything is going to be OK.

A v rad friend once said, “The secret to happiness is never reading comments on the Internet.” I hate being reminded of this, cos that means I forgot this bit of wisdom. :3

I always used to describe my depression as fog, and then I saw this and it makes me happy in a way to know I’m not the only one with the fog in my brain.

"People will kill you over time, and how they’ll kill you is with tiny, harmless phrases, like: ‘be realistic.’"

"That pantheistic, mystical “Thou art God!” chorus that runs through the book is not offered as a creed, but as an existentialist assumption of personal responsibility, devoid of all godding. It says, “Don’t appeal for mercy to God the Father up in the sky, little man, because he’s not at home and never was at home, and couldn’t care less. What you do with yourself, whether you are happy or unhappy–live or die–is strictly your business and the universe doesn’t care. In fact, you may be be the universe and the only cause for your troubles. But, at best, the most you can hope for is comradeship with comrades no more divine (or just as divine) as you are. So quit sniveling and face up to it — “Thou art God!"

"Grok means to understand so thoroughly that the observer becomes a part of the observed—to merge, blend, intermarry, lose identity in group experience. It means almost everything that we mean by religion, philosophy, and science—and it means as little to us (because of our Earthling assumptions) as color means to a blind man."
