Depression is anger channeled into nothingness. A way to deal with emotions by not dealing with them whatsoever. No pain, no anguish, no torment. But no solace.
It is very possible to shut out everything. But then you will never feel the unexpected joy of a cool summer breeze once again. Something unearned, something unplanned. But something beautiful.
If you’re mad, you can make change. If you’re pissed, you can start anew. If you’re enraged, you can declare “never again.” Unbridled rage can be the greatest motivation. It’s better than the alternative.
“Because nothing hurts like nothing at all.”
