I will be fully me until the end of me,
until the fully unavoidable occurs.
While in hell, I am Hell-Fighter,
the flip-side of my coin – a calm
blinder than rage
whose name hell can’t contain.
in Hell III: The Human Animal in Hell
Any thoughts on what sorts of things really do work to help put the worst things that can happen to us in a perspective that isn’t bitter or resentful?
I think that for people who have experienced major hardship, this can be a difficult topic. So was forgiveness, which we looked at several months ago. Maybe there’s a relationship between the two subjects.
