I'm looking for reading material that will desensitize me to violence and or heartbreak. I've concluded I have some sort of emotional hang up and I need to rid of it in order to be more productive and start living. If a book exists that contains a myriad of absolutely horrid, depressing short stories or something of the like, I would appreciate being pointed in its direction. Websites that have these sort of stories would be fine too, or books that are just generally depressing (I believe I'm at a point where I can read something depressing and not end up being depressed but rather toughen up by it). Preferably all contained in one book though so I can read it on my Kindle. Thanks!

the bible.

Does it actually have depressing stories in it? I don't like the idea of needing a savior or anything like that so I wouldn't be reading it for spiritual guidance (I don't believe in spirituality or god). I would prefer gritty, realistic stories that have no saviors, no happy endings, etc because I believe that sort of reading will help my reevaluate my expectations and become more self-reliant and self-dependent.

I could probably just read depressing news stories but I like the idea of reading things specifically designed to be as heart wrenching as possible, whereas news stories try to sugarcoat things a bit

Perhaps a new question, then: What Q&A forum/board can I go to where people might be interested in answering this question?

Read "The Secret History" by Donna Tart. Just read it and don't ever do this kind of a stupid thread ever again, Jesus fucking Christ.
