Goodreads: 40 pieces that capture her stream on conscious, her confessions, and her strange thoughts. In Mad Woman, she bears it all and embraces her madness driven by loneliness and disappointment.
Highlights of the Book:
- I have learned that it’s perfectly okay to wander as long as you never stop wondering.
- I think I will find love one day. I think it will scare he shit out of me. I’m more frightened that I won’t know how to let it in and I will leave like I always do when things feel so intense. I don’t mind the hurt but the happy can be taken away and that scares me. I think I will find love one day. I will try to let it in.
- Everyone is human but no one knows what it is to be human.
- The boogeyman will sometimes look a lot like someone we know.
- Everything leaves, even parts of yourself.
- Do we ever really lose anything? Or is it somewhere else being exactly where it’s meant to be?
- People die over and over again all the time. It’t the only way we can survive.
- When you strip yourself of something people expect, of something they have decided is who you are, you become truly free. Don’t let them take you under. Don’t let them decide who you are before you’ve had the chance to.
Would I recommend the book? No. Although it’s quite short and you can finish it in 20 minutes, you might as well be reading somewhere else. But, make no mistake. There are some worthy lines such as the ones I handpicked at the top. 😀
