Here, it says to “like yourself.”

What does that mean? Good things- how are you supposed to find them? I only know things that I hate about myself. Because that’s all I know, I hate myself. But even if you force yourself to find good things, it feels so empty. It doesn’t work that way. People like your teacher just don’t get it. I think when you hear someone say they like you, for the first time, then you can begin to like yourself. I think when someone accepts you, for the first time, you feel like you can forgive yourself a little. You can begin to face your fears with courage.

Nobody completes anybody

That’s not a real thing. If you’re lucky enough to find someone you can halfway tolerate, you sink your nails in and don’t let go no matter what.

Settle. Because otherwise you’re just gonna get older and harder, and more alone. And you’re gonna do everything you can to fill that hole, with friends, and your career, and meaningless sex, but the hole doesn’t get filled. One day, you’re gonna look around and you’re going to realize that everybody loves you, but nobody likes you. And that is the loneliest feeling in the world

I wish I could quit you

The first weekly quote of the new season is from a book that I read when I was a teenager and that still gets under my skin, after so many years. I have a bit of a thing for tragic romances, unrequited loves, relationships endangered by secrets and heartbreaking breakups.

Brokeback Mountain is all of this and so much more.

“You got no fuckin idea how bad it gets. I’m not you. I can’t make it on a couple high-altitude fucks once or twice a year. You’re too much for me, Ennis, you son of a whoreson bitch. I wish I knew how to quit you.”

Annie Proulx, Brokeback Mountain
