"Have you ever been sad because you realized you’re over someone and you don’t need them anymore? Like something about the way you woke up crying and screaming their name and something about texting them when you were drunk was addicting. And now it’s sad because you don’t even think of them often when you’re sober because they’re completely gone. You’ve lost them and you’ve lost their memory because you don’t remember them anymore. Sometimes you forget they exist and now that you think of it you don’t remember their middle name. You lose someone twice, once when they leave, and once when you decide to walk away from all the memories. And I’m not sure which one is more sad."
once i got very drunk in a bar and my mum had to pick me up so i was trying to act normal by keeping the conversation so i asked her if shes a virgin and she looked at me with pain in her eyes and said “i wish i was”
"I used to feel so alone in the city. All those gazillions of people and then me, on the outside. Because how do you meet a new person? I was very stumped by this for many years. And then I realized, you just say “Hi.” They may ignore you. Or you may marry them. And that possibility is worth that one word."
