By early afternoon he was overcome by the feeling that nothing was right, or nothing was right for him, and by the desire to be alone.

You are not a victim. No matter what you have been through, you're still here.
“You are not a victim. No matter what you have been through, you're still here. You may have been challenged, hurt, betrayed, beaten, and discouraged, but nothing has defeated you.

Steve Maraboli, Unapologetically You: Reflections on Life and the Human Experience

“The worst wounds, the deadliest of them, aren't the ones people see on the outside. They're the ones that make us bleed internally.”
Sherrilyn Kenyon, Infamous

C.S. Lewis
“Mental pain is less dramatic than physical pain, but it is more common and also more hard to bear. The frequent attempt to conceal mental pain increases the burden: it is easier to say “My tooth is aching” than to say “My heart is broken.”

“If happy I can be I will, if suffer I must I can.”
William Faulkner, Absalom, Absalom!
