Am I Burdening People by Talking About My Depression? - The Atlantic
“But then you reach your breaking point—and do not break. With patience and the right medicine, the fog in your brain begins to thin. If you are lucky, as I was, you encounter doctors and nurses who know parts of your mind better than you do. There are friends who run into the burning building of your life to rescue you, and acquaintances who become friends. You meet other patients, from entirely different backgrounds, who share your symptoms, creating a community of the wounded. And you learn of the valor they show in lonely rooms.

Over time, you begin to see hints and glimmers of a larger world outside the prison of your sadness. The conscious mind takes hold of some shred of beauty or love. And then more shreds, until you begin to think maybe, just maybe, there is something better on the far side of despair.”

Quote: " The Like button specifically heightens anxiety and decreases feelings of self-worth. We use these platforms because we seek validation and human acknowledgement and interaction, but never get it. So we come back (at least every 12 minutes). Looking for self-worth on these platforms is a false dichotomy—how can we increase “self” from external factors? How we can place any part of worth in the number of clicks we get on a heart after our updates?"

“I Don’t Know If This Letter Will Reach You”: The Letters Of Hannah Arendt And Gershom Scholem, by Nathan Goldman – Los Angeles Review of Books
It is, perhaps, a gesture toward the fundamental uncertainty at the heart of the intimacy established through letter-writing. Epistolary correspondence is always an act of reaching out in which the letter might not reach its intended recipient. Of course, this is true in the literal sense to which Arendt’s sentence most obviously and immediately refers, especially in the war-torn time during which Arendt and Scholem began their correspondence. But beyond this, the line highlights the way in which a letter is always an attempt for a person to come across despite distance — not only the distances of time and space, but also the subtler ones that separate us.
