Favorite Quote:
"Soon madness has worn you down. It’s easier to do what it says than argue. In this way, it takes over your mind. You no longer know where it ends and you begin. You believe anything it says. You do what it tells you, no matter how extreme or absurd. If it says you’re worthless, you agree. You plead for it to stop. You promise to behave. You are on your knees before it, and it laughs."
— Marya Hornbacher


spread out your leaves like angel wings and grow up towards the heavens
dress yourself in the golden halo of the sun which shines upon you
loosen the grip of your roots in the dirt and stretch your stem to the skies
