"There are times when it will go so wrong that you will barely be alive, and times when you realise that being barely alive, on your own terms, is better than living a bloated half-life on someone else’s terms."

"Don’t you dare
Shrink yourself
For someone else’s comfort -
Do not become small
For people who refuse to grow."

"
And you wait, await the
one thing
that will infinitely increase
your life;
the gigantic, the
stupendous,
the awakening of stones,
depths turned round
toward you.
The volumes in brown and
gold
flicker dimly on the
bookshelves;
and you think of lands traveled through,
of paintings, of the
garments
of women lost and found.
And then all at once you
know; that was it.
You rise, and there stands
before you
the fear and prayer and
shape
of a vanished year.
"

"I didn’t know why I was going to cry, but I knew that if anybody spoke to me or looked at me too closely the tears would fly out of my eyes and the sobs would fly out of my throat and I’d cry for a week. I could feel the tears brimming and sloshing in me like water in a glass that is unsteady and too full."
Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar
