About: "If you can think of times in your life that you’ve treated people with extraordinary decency and love, and pure uninterested concern, just because they were valuable as human beings. The ability to do that with ourselves. To treat ourselves the way we would treat a really good, precious friend. Or a tiny child of ours that we absolutely loved more than life itself. And I think it’s probably possible to achieve that. I think part of the job we’re here for is to learn how to do it. I know that sounds a little pious."
“When someone or something you love disappears or moves on, it feels negotiable. Maybe we’ll get back together, maybe they’ll come back, maybe they are in a better place for them and I have to accept that there are things out of my control. These are all difficult emotional options, especially the last one. If you are alive and awake, sadness is a fluctuating constant. Hope is fleeting, a decision you make out of faith, desire, or desperation.”

“Take it from me: if you hear the past speaking to you, feel it tugging up your back and running its fingers up your spine, the best thing to do - the only thing to do - is run.”
