I went away in my head, into a book. That was where I went whenever real life was too hard or too inflexible.
― Neil Gaiman, The Ocean at the End of the Lane (via wordsnquotes)
Sure, I’m sad, but I’m not looking to soothe that sadness by replacing it with a new relationship. Women are allowed to be sad, and they’re allowed to be single, and they don’t need to hear that one day a man is going to make it all go away by telling her she is good enough again. She’s good enough as she is.
