  1. Probably one thing that many people who suffer from depression feel is an intense anger or hatred directed at oneself. Imagine being with someone you hate 24/7, and can’t get away from, and can never begin to like. You will die with this person, and for some, that’s a difficult thing to live with.

  2. That’s a profound observation about having to live with yourself 24/7. That’s one of the nice things about sleep (when it comes), you can get away from yourself — at least, consciously — for a while. But I think that dying with this person will be a relief. I believe in heaven, the way there has been shown to me, and I’ve accepted that path; and I believe that when I go there, that negative person will become dust (or ashes). But in the mean time, I’m stuck with me.

    That leads to an interesting thought. Suppose there’s the redeemed me, and the unredeemable me. Could I make it my mission to do as much as I can to comfort and train the unredeemable me, to redeem as much of his life as I can before he dies? I’d write it down with my goals, but it would probably be disappearing ink, just like all the other goals.
