A Reader’s Torment

“You think your pain and your heartbreak are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read. It was books that taught me that the things that tormented me most were the very things that connected me with all the people who were alive, who had ever been alive.”

-James Baldwin

  2. Whenever I was very upset about something, an old friend of mine used to say, “You are not a snowflake,” meaning: “You may feel that you are entirely alone in having these sorts of problems, but actually your experience is entirely human – so chill out.”
