    Maybe we need to redefine "healthy activity" to allow the benefits of associated actions.

    I guess if you're going to be over-the-top Freudian . . .

    I disagree with you, though. I think it's possible that because certain feelings are outside your own experience at this time, you are trying to justify them in terms that make sense to you and it isn't getting you good results.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”
