And yet…
Deprive them of their illusions

“I´d rather choose to suffer, fooling myself that I am entitled to be an autonomous victim, having thus a reason to blame another, than realizing that there is no one to punish and that I can be choicelessly free, content and naturally integrated…”

I think and think and think, I‘ve thought myself out of happiness one million times, but never once into it
