A lesson on love...
22 July, 2002 :: 11:19 a.m.

What made us think that anyone who fails to love us is damaged, lacking,malfunctioning in some way?...We are so convinced of the goodness of ourselves, and the goodness of our love, we cannot bear to believe that there might be something more worthy of love than us...Greeting cards routinely tell us everybody deserves love. No. Everybody deserves clean water. Not everybody deserves love all the time.--Zadie Smith, White Teeth

Oh. It's all starting to make sense now. That sounds sarcastic even to me and I'm typing it...I mean it. That really rings true. But it doesn't change my belief that I deserve love!
