"on the surface you see a house, a car, but you peel it back and you see deeper stuff...as someone who was prone to distraction, that was

prone to want to escape, that was my refuge in times of trouble- my idolotry was my escape and my right to it"

"that all indicate a craving for a relationship, but this idol of needing acceptance."

"historically, he places an idol in front of you, that you turn to in times of need

when we grow callus and content to having it both ways.

  • "This traditionally male social scheme has been reconstructed by girls who took a good look around and decided that it was better to be predator than prey, better to do unto others before they do unto you. The fatal flaw in this scheme is that when girls believe this, they lose their bearings when the tables are turned. Some girls are surprised by the emptiness they feel when there's literally nobody new left to hook up with. Some are surprised when they discover that, having gotten sex, they want love, and they're unsure how to find it or, if they find it, how to handle it. Some are bewildered when the boy says he wants more than sex, or when he does the walking away. Hooking up leaves them unable to navigae in a world where their wants aren't the only consideration. That is, they don't know how to lose--and they don't know that even winning isn't ...

It's harder to be dismissed because I'm not smart than because I'm not pretty"... Didn't she know me well enough to understand that I'd staked my whole life on being smart? "I have lots of practice at not being pretty enough or thin enough. Dating isn't personal, not like..." But I couldn't finish the sentence.

because in my mind, the more fucked up someone is, the more unique that makes them

bored with life. bored with trying. bored with nothing working out. bored with living. bored with meaningless people. bored with facebook. bored with being sick. bored with guys. bored with meaninglessness. bored with gluten-free food. bored with in n out. bored with going out. bored with dressing up. bored with faceless fucks. bored with medication. bored with being bored. bored with misreading everything. bored with never being chosen. bored of my lipring. bored with going to shows by myself. bored with my 'friends'. bored with being so alone. bored with ignoring emotion. bored with embracing emotion.

want to curl up inside a david foster wallace book. feel this would give my life 'meaning'. at the very least, he makes everything awful sound so delightful.

  • "You're lying. That's why you feel depressed and empty. Because you're afraid to feel. That doesn't mean you need to call him in desperation. but you need to feel it, to not be afraid to feel it. Admit that it hurts... This is why you do drugs. This is why you feel terrible. You think it's because you feel everything too much. But it's not. It's that you don't feel things enough. All those times that you panic and get hysterical waiting for some guy, any guy, to call you, it's not because your feelings are exaggerated. It's because you don't feel at all... So you overreact to nothing, but that overreacting is not feeling- it's reacting. If you just sat there and said to yourself that it hurts and there's nothing you can do, you'd get through it. Instead you drive yourself crazy wishing these things didn't hurt. You feel stupid and bad about yourself...
