Something I wish I'd known back in the days of the garage

Change comes slowly, in small increments - each step cemented into habit through months of repetition and painstaking work. The road out of depression is like that. And before you start, you have to know your destination. It is not happiness. It is optimism.

The Ghost in the House, Tracy Thompson

It's all those children's book that end with 'happy ever after' that set us up for disappointment. Long live realism.

(A very good book, by the way. Focuses on maternal depression but has a wider message.)
