"I used to think that as long as I had myself, I could take on anything in the world. Because people disappoint. And honest to God, I really didn’t need anymore of that. I didn’t want to count on anybody to see me through, because they were going to let me down anyway. All I had to do was muster all the strength I could possibly squeeze out of my tiny being and trudge on with life. But I think I’m losing myself and I’m not sure I’ll ever find me again."
"No relationship is perfect, ever. There are always some ways you have to bend, to compromise, to give something up in order to gain something greater…The love we have for each other is bigger than these small differences. And that’s the key. It’s like a big pie chart, and the love in a relationship has to be the biggest piece. Love can make up for a lot."
