I Want To Say…..

I Want To Say…

“I want to say somewhere: I’ve tried to be forgiving. And yet. There were times in my life, whole years, when anger got the better of me. Ugliness turned me inside out. There was a certain satisfaction in bitterness. I courted it. It was standing outside, and I invited it in.”
―Nicole Krauss

*It takes a very strong person to admit this. I’m inspired by this quote, even if others don’t understand it. Not everyone’s life is the same.*

  1. Oh I get this… it is true that misery loves company and when it comes to your door looking to court you it is persistent. Sometimes it is so sweet and seductive you don’t even realize you have let it in until you are so comfortable in it, and then trying to break free is a form of torture. It is like an addiction perhaps.

    • I had not looked at it from that perspective. Probably because my brain doesn’t generally go in that direction. I was posting it more from an angry perspective. There is something that has been bothering me, and that quote sort of summed it up for me in the moment.
