Solitary Confinement

Featured image

Even if all the gates flew open, she didn’t move outside. She saw that all of her companions took advantage of the situation to set themselves free; yet she didn’t waver even for a bit. She seemed to have grown accustomed to her illusory and ‘comfortable’ personal space. Her way of giving an excuse to something that demanded her to take a life-saving risk.

  1. Yes, I have done this myself. Be cautious and avoid risky notions. But how can one fully enjoy life without taking a risk or two? What does one miss out on by succumbing to fear and maintaining the status quo? Quite a bit, as it may turn out. Ideally, one would have the ability to jump off the ledge, yet still have their safe space to retreat to when things get too crazy.

      Thanks.

      I know I’m replying too late on this one, but I have no idea how I missed the comments on this post all these years.

  2. My goodness, is there any aspect of my mental life the Germans don’t already have a word for? Half the time, I’m not entirely sure what’s going on in my head myself. I’ll read about some German expression or other and suddenly I realize, “So that’s how I feel!”

  3. Just one quick query – this is some medical student you’re talking of, right? Because this is pretty normal if that’s the case. Solitary confinement – for ten years at a minimum. Just you, your room and your books..
