The Tetris Theory Of Emotional Breakdowns

(This is an experiment, a combo post from both my blog and my Notes To Self.)

Life comes at you like blocks in Tetris. The pieces fall and you stick them where you can, and gaps form. You try to fill those gaps with external crap (like love, alcohol, video games and other distractions).

And then one day, it all just...

...Falls apart.

...But you still have all the pieces.

So you get to rebuild. Narrower, deeper, and much more solid.

And you realize the gaps can't be filled by anyone or anything else besides you.
