I was a few years out of a heavy relationship. We still weren't really talking; things seemed worse than right after we split. I hadn't processed any of it, had instead dived straight in to the basement and worked on A I A. Stopped hanging out with friends; didn't occur to me to try to date, or pay attention to the news, what else was going on in the world. At that time I still wasn't talking about my problems with anyone. I was living by a popular myth, that if I didn't talk about something, it wouldn't be a problem. Ruins helped crack me open.
