I’m not sure whether anxiety and depression are feelings, or mental states that keep you at a distance from your feelings. Regardless, a big old ball of anxiety tinged with despair has been hanging over me like that little Zoloft cloud lately, and every which way I’ve tried to fight it – or not fight it and simply get through it – has failed miserably…
…including posting this quote. Oh well. Maybe it’ll work for you.
(I don’t know whether this rightly belongs in the “inspiration and encouragement” category, but I don’t have one called “let’s all feel like shit together,” so it’ll have to do.)
One thought on “(get over the) hump day inspiration: Rilke edition”
Rainer Maria Rilke was my father’s favorite writer, and certainly became mine when it comes to inspiration: feeling it, sharing it, recovering it (or from it?). Thank you for sharing. I relate. In every drop of depression is a treasure of not-yet-expressed inspiration.
