- How awful it feels to hurt someone's feelings, especially someone you love, even if you didn't mean to do it.
- When I'm depressed I have a strong desire to get lost someplace where I can be alone and I don't have to think about anything, just wander. A book store. A fabric store. A card store. A plant store. This wandering often leads to spending money I don't have on things I don't need.
