“Because that’s the thing about depression. When I feel it deeply, I don’t want to let it go. It becomes a comfort. I want to cloak myself under its heavy weight and breathe it into my lungs. I want to nurture it, grow it, cultivate it. It’s mine. I want to check out with it, drift asleep wrapped in its arms and not wake up for a long, long time.”
Yes, I’m feeling fine. No, I’m not depressed. I just have a post written on a related subject that I want to sleep on before I hit publish.
And I completely agree with this quote, although I couldn’t ever write it as nicely as Stephanie Perkins.
(Honestly though, I just wanted to try out the quote feature on WordPress :P)
