“We burn to live, to live is to burn”
“We save those from themselves because they themselves are not strong enough”
“We do what is hard, but we do what is necessary”
“We take away the pain, the pain the books have provided”
This seemed to calm me. I felt a reminder of this feeling that I was experiencing right then was why we burn. We burn to prevent this pain and fear of missing out. This is what makes us not grateful for our lives. I then became furious at myself for falling into the books wicked trap. I was ashamed, but proud I didn’t finish it. All I knew was that if I had kept reading it would have only grew worse. I must stay on task. I must help others stay on their path to happiness. And books are NOT that road.
