Grab the nearest book.
* Open the book to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST.

"It is not the sheer process of ventilation that is important; it is not only the discovery that others have problems similar to one's own and the ensuing disconfirmation of one's wretched uniqueness that are important." -- The Theory and Practice of Group Psychotherapy by Irvin D. Yalom

I never do these because I feel like I am too tempted to "find" a book, but today I just looked behind me for what was closest and ta da.

And because I feel it's important to say (and because I was debating which was actually the fifth sentence, versus the fifth full sentence on the page), I'm going to just add the following sentence from the book to put this in context.

"It is the affective sharing of one's inner world and then the acceptance by others that seem of paramount importance."
