A Long Way Down - Nick Hornby

This quote was added by mackenzie0629
My therapist told me a story, true story, about this guy who survived jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge. The moment he jumped he realized that the only thing in his life he couldn't fix was the thing he had just done. Can you imagine those five seconds as he fell, the agony of that? Well to me it feels like I felt without falling.

I feel you, my friend. Our parents brought us to this (wicked) world without our conscious consent... that so far we can know of. Therefore we can definitely feel what the guy who fell felt for the five seconds, without us actually falling from a tall bridge. Simply put, we "wish ourselves never born", say, sometimes...
