“ I like her. She makes life interesting. She, herself, is interesting, I suppose. She talks right from the heart. I appreciate her frankness and I like the fact that she doesn’t force the natural flow of a conversation. There’s personality in her words. She thus gets to the core of things and that’s important because with her — I can talk knowing that the talk is real! Oh believe me, it’s amazingly real! And she also gives me the opportunity to listen as fully and completely as possible. And I can’t seem to get her out of my head […] ”

Hello. This is not an issue for a philosopher, nor for a stranger on the other side of your computer screen. An addiction is a complex social and medical issue that must be addressed by appropriate professionals. Please voice your concerns to your friend, their immediate family and to a reliable professional party who is able to provide help, such as a doctor, a counsellor or possibly a local treatment centre. I advice you to contact a local helpline and discuss the situation with them immediately; they will be able to provide you information on what you can do and who you can contact. I wish you and your friend all the best.

soft as she is

“ My blood was in a fervent within me, my heart full of longing, sweetly and foolishly; I was all expectancy and wonder; I was tremulous and waiting; my fancy fluttered about the same images like martins round a bell tower at dawn; I dreamed and was sad and sometimes cried. But through the tears and the melancholy, inspired by the beauty of verse or the beauty of the evening, there always rose upwards, like the grasses of early spring, shoots of happy feeling, of young and surging life. ”
