I never wanted to read another war novel again, and I never did.
Bob Dylan, describing All Quiet on the Western Front
Optional soundtrack for this practice: “End of the Line” by The Traveling Wilburys
Practice: Identify something small or large that you feel done with. Naming it may be enough or you can escalate to telling someone.
