"I'm still an oversensitive alcoholic, I just don't drink anymore."
I thought I got high to get happy, but really I got high to escape unhappy.
"my feelings are not permanent."
Time will distort the details of our past, but it will never amend the emotion of a memory.
If I keep getting pissed off at the same thing--then I’m not growing--I'm surviving.
The pain of not taking action has to get bigger than the pain of taking action.
If my happiness comes from looking forward to something, then that something isn’t my happiness, it’s an escape from my unhappiness.
