MYTHED CONNECTIONS from ENCOURAGER

Do you guys all know the story of Narcissus? He was this really cute boy who was out in the woods, and these fairies were teasing him, just repeating everything he said back to him over and over. And it drove him crazy, so he fell in love with his own reflection and he drowned. But he was bullied to death. This is a kind of suicide, falling in love with yourself and then drowning. But it’s the result of bullying. I mean, look; if the world is mean to you, you have no option, no choice, no recourse but to fall in love with yourself. You think it’s safer, and hey, I don’t blame you. But if everywhere you look, you see you, looking for you, if everywhere you look, you see the same thing, that might mean you have bad eyes. It might mean that you’re sick.
