The girl began to touch her face timidly, recoiling from the feel of her own featues. Her curled fingers brushed the mark on her forehead, and she closed her eyes and gave a thin, stabbing howl of loss and weariness and utter despair.

"What have you done to me?" she cried. "I will die here!" She tore at the smooth body, and blood followed her fingers. "I will die here! I will die!"

[…] The white girl said, “I am myself still. This body is dying. I can feel it rotting all around me. How can anything that is going to die be real? How can it be truly beautiful?”

[…] “Even the greatest wizards grow old, like other men, and die.” He swayed and nodded and then snapped awake again: a tall, thin, shabby man, smelling of dust and drink. “I told you that I was older than I look,” he said. “I was born mortal, and I have been immortal for a long, foolish time, and one day I will be mortal again; so I know something that a unicorn cannot know. Whatever can die is beautiful — more beautiful than a unicorn, who lives forever, and who is the most beautiful creature in the world. Do you understand me?”

"No," she said.

The magician smiled wearily. “You will.”

  • American Friend: THOUSAND?
  • French Friend: Um, no. 406 Euro. It sounds a little high but it covers the cost of my textbooks, extra classes and most of my housing. How much is it for you?

Suffering from depression convinces us that we shouldn’t make space for ourselves. We often feel like we’re shrinking and becoming invisible because we aren’t sure how to verbalize our feelings, or we don’t think we can or should. Let your loved ones with depression into your life, or your home, or your car, so that we don’t feel like we’re disappearing. Make space for us. Let us be the center of attention every once in a while without having to talk about our problems. That way, we can tangibly feel that we exist, we’re real, and we matter.
