We’re all damaged, it seems, some of us more than others. We carry the damage with us from childhood. And as grown ups, we give as good as we get. Ultimately, we all do damage. And then we set about the business of fixing whatever we can.
Grey’s Anatomy; Meredith Grey
Because if she let go of her grief even for a minute it would only hit her harder when she bumped into it again.
Alice Munro

Do I sound bitter? Do I sound desperate? I do. I know I do. And I can’t blame you for that. That’s on me. I’ve learned that lesson. You did not make me bitter. You did not make me desperate.

I did.

I just thought it was going really well. We talked for weeks. Things progressed so nicely. You recommended books to me for crissake. How great is that? That’s fucking resplendent as fuck; I don’t find things romantic, but that was. I don’t think you meant it that way.

I don’t know if there were red flags. I’m usually so good at red flags. I’m a side-stepper. I get away from red flags. Well, really, I don’t get in situations that have flags of any color. I walk alone. Always.

I just thought you were my break from that. From solitude. I thought you were going to want to hang out with me. I thought you were going to fall in like with my mind. I thought you were going to find parts of me sexy — ethereal parts, not cliche body parts.

Nope. I’m back to solitude. I like this. I keep reminding myself how I didn’t really want a relationship any way. I am low maintenance. I keep reminding myself. I don’t need more. I’m better on my own.

This is my punishment for getting weirdly hopeful. It’s like that Gnarles Barkley song “Crazy.”

Hahaha, bless your soul.

You naive little thing. You thought a guy liked you.

Man, I’m getting adept at condescending myself.

I walk alone. Always. And every time I forget that, the price I pay goes up. I need to stop wanting. It’s only going to cost me.

I Can’t Keep Waiting Around For You {X}
Let someone love you just the way you are – as flawed as you might be, as unattractive as you sometimes feel, and as unaccomplished as you think you are. To believe that you must hide all the parts of you that are broken, out of fear that someone else is incapable of loving what is less than perfect, is to believe that sunlight is incapable of entering a broken window and illuminating a dark room.

okay seriously if you’re in a relationship or even a friendship and you find yourself spending more time crying out of sadness or arguing with them, leave them. i don’t care if they’re a modern day aphrodite/adonis or a gift bestowed upon you by the gods. toxic people are dangerous and i highly advise cutting them out of your life and finding someone who makes you laugh until you snort your drink out your nose instead.

Lisa Schroeder, Chasing Brooklyn

I hate most people. And I don’t want to, it’s an awful way to be. But the human race gives me no comfort. I find myself turning to books and films for comfort still. It’s repulsive, because one’s life consists of people, not things.

I need a soul mate so that I can be who I am, naked. I want there to be someone who picks up my heavy, bleeding heart and takes it somewhere safe and warm.

It takes ten times as long to put yourself back together as it does to fall apart.
