"When one is born, their image of self is a pure crisp pool of water. When one experiences something traumatic, it acts as a pollutant to this self-image. The concentration of the trauma may diffuse, but the initial concentration is difficult to bear. One loses the very definition of their self through this trauma. When a parent dies, one has to deal with not being my mother’s son." When one experiences heartbreak, they lose the part of oneself that is, "my lover’s significant other." The remnants of the diffused pollutant remain in the pool for one’s entire life, slowly darkening the pure pool were born with, but we slowly adapt to survive the filth."
