The novel Devil in Details: Scenes From an Obsessive Girlhood by Jennifer Traig holds a lot of moments in which I can easily connect to. Jennifer Traig, who had obsessive compulsive disorder from a young age, felt the need to do things over and over again. While I myself do not have obsessive compulsive disorder, I can strangely connect with her. At one point in the book, Traig talks about her praying. Though when she prays, she does not pray for herself or for the things she wishes and hopes she could have one day. Instead, she prays for the names of the missing children she memorized off of the T.V., for her family, and her friends. Overall, she prays for everyone else around her and everyone going through some kind of pain in her environment. This is where I connect to her: the way we pray. When I pray at night, I leave myself out of all prayers to prevent feeling selfish or to not feel as if I am asking too much from God, who has already given me enough. Instead of asking for things that I wish to have, I pray for those who are in need for food and water, for those who do not have families, for those who are in the hospital to return to their homes healthy again, for everyone to be safe, healthy, and happy, including my family and friends of course. With this connection, I am able to see and tell how she felt when she prayed, which to me is an unselfish and caring act.
