The tides of life against the shores of your soul.

[italic] “There is something profound happening between the ocean and the shore. This meticulous and constant filling and emptying resembles the rhythm of one’s individual life.[/italic]

[italic]When depression takes you over, it is as if the tide of your joy, your sense of life has withdrawn and will never return. At such a time you are marooned on a vacant shore, even the most simple gesture has to be deliberately achieved. The natural flow of spontaneity has ceased. In such times it is important to remember that the tide has merely gone out and with the certitude of the ocean rhythm, it will definitely return again and restore your old buoyancy.[/italic]

- John O’Donohue, [bold]Four Elements: Reflections on Nature[/bold]

The thread title is mine. The quote is something I randomly opened to after feeling compelled to pull the aforementioned book from my shelf. Just wanted to share.

I hope that is true. That used to be true for me. The tide would always return. But my tide has been out for a long time this time.

R1 What’s going on? Why do you feel that way?

Your heart is like a great river after a long spell of rain, spilling over its banks.

All signposts that once stood on the ground are gone, inundated and carried away by that rush of water.

And still the rain beats down on the surface of the river.

Every time you see a flood like that on the news you tell yourself: That’s it. That’s my heart.”

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
