"Truth either really exists or it doesn't exist.  If it exists, then it exists.  But if it doesn't exist, then it is true that it doesn't exist and therefore truth exists.  So whether truth exists or doesn't exist:  truth exists."     - Saint Augustine

 

"Astronomically speaking, man is totally insignificant.  No.  Astronomically speaking, man is the astronomer."  - Albert Einstein

It works for me to believe this is an illness that needs medication and treatment and it makes my life better. If it's better for you that you have an alternative way of being and you're happy and you're functional or happy enough, all the more power to you. So it's sort of a very individual thing.

"In short, showing self-kindness means treating our worth as unconditional even when we fall short of our own expectations, whether it’s through our behaviors or even just our thoughts." 

I came across this quote today, and I really needed to hear it and thought others might too. I need to put this somewhere where I can see it everyday.

I needed that as well so thank you.  Life is so short.  We should be good to ourselves all the time in an uncondional way.  This illness tends to make us feel guilty or bad for being good to ourselves sometimes.  We should never feel bad about it.
