“To deliberately hurt yourself is too counter-intuitive. It’s not as if I’ve never been self-destructive before, but it was always in the context of trying to make life more bearable, to make living through some sad moment more tolerable. But a deliberate overdose is not part of a night out or a party: It is self-destruction for its own sake, and it is consequently the purest and most deliberate act deliberate act of hatred I have ever committed.” – Elizabeth Wurtzel
