Take a good hard look at yourself in the mirror. … You’re in a spiral, you’re in a downward spiral. This is an ugly side of you, but you don’t have to be ugly. You don’t. You can take stock. Make yourself better. Okay? This is an opportunity for you to make yourself better, to change, to become better than what you were.
Reminds me a bit of that Cherokee story of the wolves within.
