Gratitude keeps him happy with the nothing he became.
Nobody grows by flattery. No one benefits from chasing down a flawed dream they are not suited for or can’t properly defend.
My anxiety has forced me to be self-aware and develop an incredible knack for being endlessly introspective. I could probably tell you why I’m feeling the way I’m feeling and then extrapolate that feeling out to more feelings. And that in itself is a talent. I’ve even been able to simplify it as skills on my resume: analytical and self-aware.

Every day is a constant battle in your head. Did I let him in too easily? Am I too attached? What is wrong with me? Is he thinking about me too?
Bear with her, even when she pushes you away. She wants more than anything to pour her heart out to you, but she’s afraid of letting you in.
I will let you in, slowly, every day until there is nowhere else for you to go. I will beat the demons that frolic in my head and I will tell you the truth every day.
I was a happy kid, lucky enough to have wise and well-adjusted parents. I can relive injuries: falling off a slide into darkness and screaming.
You’ll always think you have time.
Look for true freedom. It’s the only real answer. The only way to fight for what is good and just. For the only pure and satisfying love comes from within.
