For the thinking persons, there is a dialogue happening between the acts of reading books and writing books.

Whether the dialogue be competitive or cooperative, is another matter though.

Ideally it should be cooperative though, don’t you think? Constructive?

How was it said? “The goal of discussion should not be victory but rather progress”? Or something..?

The irony of opening up is that the only people who can hurt you deeply are the ones you care about deeply.

But open up anyway. Because though you may hurt less you’ll also grow ever more numb. You become more dead inside.

In the end happiness is a choice, isn’t it.

Only you yourself & yourself alone have ultimate sovereignty over your own happiness.

Yes.

I make mistakes and it is okay, for I mean from those mistakes. I learn what I can and cannot do, and I adjust accordingly.

Human beings are messy. One cannot change the nature of the summation of all of humanity.

To deal with the messiness one needs to be more loving, more empathetic, more forgiving. The way I see it its the most effective way to mitigate your pain and their pain.

Failing that, an option is to extricate yourself from all human communication.

If you have your own solutions, as alternatives, use that.

incidentalcomics:

This is one of my favorite pages from my upcoming book, The Shape of Ideas. I drew it as a student searching for a balance between

my passion for cartooning, my personal life, and my chosen career of dentistry. Four years later, I have rewarding work as an orthodontist, a young family, and I’m celebrating the publication of my first book. 

I’ve come to believe that the answer to the final panel is YES.

The book is available here: http://amzn.to/2osPW68

till-the-end-of-thebucky:

do you guys ever get to that point where hobbies are literally stressful? like people are like “oh youre depressed and/or anxious? just do something you love!” but literally doing the things you actually do still like doing stresses you out because you don’t know if you’re doing them often enough or right enough or if you’re having enough fun doing them

SIK#041

Have I never had a hobby like this? Oh yes, yes I have, no doubt.

Would I pursue it again? Oh I’d love to. If I could ever find the strength & capacity again.
