I'm a fiercely independent soul, believing strongly in the importance of being whole on your own. But still, I am a hopeless romantic, infatuated with mad, passionate love, and the idea of two souls merging as one. These sides often battle, and they fight hard. And they both refuse to back down.
Loneliness is the human condition. Cultivate it. Never expect to outgrow loneliness. Never hope to find people who will understand you, someone to fill that space. An intelligent, sensitive person is the exception, the very great exception. If you expect to find people who will understand you, you will grow murderous with disappointment. The best you’ll ever do is to understand yourself, know what it is that you want, and not let the cattle stand in your way. Janet Finch
