The secret of joy is the mastery of pain.
– Anaïs Nin
@caffo Just read about her and she seems a fascinating person - tragic and triumphant in equal measure.
A good reminder to keep a diary https://lithub.com/the-wild-impassioned-world-of-anais-nins-diaries/
@dualhammers yes, her diaries are a well-written warning about how idealizing someone can cause a lifetime of pain. I need to read it again--it's been a while.
@caffo Yeah... I need to read them, as I have self-imposed the same pain for similar reasons. Is there only a single volume?
