Books as comfort littleone

I have some favourite books that bring me more comfort than my T ever could.

"The Borrowers" by Mary Norton
"Watership Down" (sudden blank!)
"The Greengae Summer" by Rumer Godden
"Harriet the Spy" by Louise Fitzhughes
"My Family and Other Animals" by Gerald Durrell
"A Little Princess" by Frances Hodgson Burnett

I can get into these books on any page, at any time, and go away, take a little vacation from the world I normally inhabit. They make me laugh or cry, they just take me away. I love that, need it and think I am a saner human being for it.

Hm. I also read for information, of course, and have learned some things that have helped with therapy, have had some insights in therapy, thanks to books, that I'm not sure I would have had otherwise.

Littleone, I'm afraid you're going to have to write the book on how to make you better. I can tell you are feeling discouraged, and I am so sorry for that. I send you courage. I wish I could send more.
