price of depth

the more that you invest emotionally in something
the more that you backwards rationalize
that there is good reason for it

and this can be as much beneficial (when it helps you grow, and establish a new reality)
as it can be detrimental (when it makes you withdraw, scattered, off-center and ungrounded)

making it harder and harder for you to break out of it

every form of (backwards) rationalization is self-hypnosis

by investing lots of energy and resource into something
-be that a given relationship or a particular identity-
you slide (and, in effect, push yourself) into an emotional wormhole
that opens and simultaneously closes/blinds you to further dimensions of being

there is always a trade-off
