“It’s like watching Paris from an express caboose heading in the opposite direction–every second the city gets smaller and smaller, only you feel it’s really you getting smaller and smaller and lonelier and lonelier, rushing away from all those lights and that excitement at about a million miles an hour.”
– Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar
Have you read Sylvia Plath’s The Bell Jar? It’s a novel by Sylvia Plath that’s semi-autobiographical. A young, beautiful, talented and successful protagonist starts to descend into a haunting depression that affects the rest of her life. Feelings and insecurities are described beautifully like the quote above, which I can totally empathize with.
