Understanding is the first step to acceptance, and only with acceptance can there be recovery.
It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.
We are all failures- at least the best of us are.
If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.
Pain or love or danger makes you real again....
Dream as if you will live forever; Live as if you will die today.
