Nepenthe (n.): Something that induces forgetfulness of sorrow or eases pain
We all have nepenthes to deal with the aches of life. For some it’s throwing themselves into work, for others it’s creating art. I like to listen to music and watch comedies to forget my pain. Whatever your method, make sure it’s healthy and wholesome and not at all harmful. There is no reason to endanger your well-being for the sake of forgetting your current grief. Don’t lose yourself in the process. You still have a life to live after all.
