"This species must change how it views mind and self. The mind does hurt itself. It isn’t "bad attitude." I have a professional persona. I come across bright, verbal, engaging. Alone I’m hard to take. So much energy to mask the pain, push off the dark, get up, smell the coffee, and try again yet this another day."
