I made the mistake of watching the film Sylvia and then rereading The Bell Jar soon after. It's never a good idea to read The Bell Jar when you're not feeling 100% good about yourself. When you're in a fragile state, you can relate a little too well to Esther Greenwood. You might, too, feel like you're trapped under a bell jar, struggling for breath.
I don't feel like that now, but a few weeks ago I did. And now I feel fine. Oh, the joys of being a woman with hormones, a human being with feelings, and a twenty-something-year-old with my life ahead of me. Blue one minute, loving life the next.
