What passages, or entire books have been therapeutic for you? Basically, in this thread, I would like you anons to share a passage or two that has been therapeutic for you. Not looking for motivational quotes or anything like that, just some honest, personal reflection.
Today I was reading Anna Karenina and read the part where Levin confesses his sins, so to speak, to Kitty by giving her his notebooks. The confession was that Levin had been with other women, and was a nonbeliever. Kitty was upset most by Levin's impurity, but forgives him while still denouncing his past as terrible.
I realize this isn't the deepest or most thought provoking except available in the book, but it struck a chord with me anyway. So much stuff in this book has spoken directly to my soul, to speak romantically, and has literally been more therapeutic than my antidepressants.
I find uplifting quotes or motivational stuff so puerile and vapid and useless... I figured this could be a better alternative. So, if you can be bothered, share your own.
