Just a Thought

I do not remember ever asking any of the other children in my class at school why they had not come to my party. I did not need to ask them. They were not my friends after all. They were just the people I went to school with.

I made friends slowly, when I made them.

mind control

I feel like I wake up sometimes and my body has decided to destroy me instead of work with me.
I want to be in control, of my body, or my mind maybe, or just something.
I know I’m in control of how I respond to when my body tortures me, and that is about all I’ve got control over.
Sometimes it seems bigger than I can handle to even maintain a positive thought in the midst of my body deciding how to hurt today.

Can you imagine, finally showing your true self to your spouse, your soul mate, and having him not like you?

There is an unfair responsibility that comes with being an only child—you grow up knowing you aren’t allowed to disappoint, you’re not even allowed to die. There isn’t a replacement toddling around; you’re it. It makes you desperate to be flawless, and it also makes you drunk with the power. In such ways are despots made.

I know women whose entire personas are woven from a benign mediocrity. Their lives are a list of shortcomings: the unappreciative boyfriend, the extra ten pounds, the dismissive boss, the conniving sister, the straying husband. I’ve always hovered above their stories, nodding in sympathy and thinking how foolish they are, these women, to let these things happen, how undisciplined. And now to be one of them! One of the women with the endless stories that make people nod sympathetically and think: Poor dumb bitch.

Shirtsleeve weather, was how my mom would have described it, forever more concerned with her children’s comfort than the actual Fahrenheit. Shirtsleeve weather, jacket weather, overcoat weather, parka weather—the Year in Outerwear.

He did apologize profusely. (Does anyone do anything profusely except apologize? Sweat, I guess.)
