“The nuances of the terminology reflect degrees of stigma, but they influence stigma too - the names we give to people's discomfort affect how uncomfortable those people make us.”
Elisa Gabbert, The Unreality of Memory: Essays

“Often, when something bad happens, I have a strange, instinctual desire for things to get even worse—I think of a terrible outcome and then wish for it. I recognize the pattern, but I don’t understand it. It’s as though my mind is running simulations and can’t help but prefer the most dramatic option—as though, in that eventuality, I could enjoy it from the outside.”
Elisa Gabbert, The Unreality of Memory: And Other Essays
