"This is all I know how to do, carry loss around until
I begin to resemble every bad memory,
every terrible fear,
every nightmare anyone has ever had."

"I’m not sad, but the boys who are looking for sad girls always find me. I’m not a girl anymore and I’m not sad anymore. You want me to be a tragic backdrop so that you can appear to be illuminated, so that people can say ‘Wow, isn’t he so terribly brave to love a girl who is so obviously sad?’ You think I’ll be the dark sky so you can be the star? I’ll swallow you whole."

"Start ignoring people who threaten your joy. Literally, ignore them. Say nothing. Don’t invite any parts of them into your space."

"

I had to
realize that I needed
to stop relying on others to make me happy.

I had to have myself first before anyone else could.

"

Regardless of how long it may take, invest love in yourself first.
