Quotes from the Borderline

“It is a curious sensation: the sort of pain that goes mercifully beyond our powers of feeling. When your heart is broken, your boats are burned: nothing matters any more. It is the end of happiness and the beginning of peace.”

    – George Bernard Shaw

“Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn’t it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build up all these defenses, you build up a whole suit of armor, so that nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life…You give them a piece of you. They didn’t ask for it. They did something dumb one day, like kiss you or smile at you, and then your life isn’t your own anymore. Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so simple a phrase like ‘maybe we should be just friends’ turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart. It hurts. Not just in the imagination. Not just in the mind. It’s a soul-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain. I hate love.”

     – Neil Gaiman

“We have to believe that even the briefest of human connections can heal. Otherwise, life is unbearable.”

       – Agate Nesaule

…. Fortunately once you’ve lived a little. Once you’ve had a few really low lows, and a few higher highs…. You do learn that things can heal. It’s those first few heartbreaks that are the worst. Simply because it’s those times that you don’t know that you can get through. You don’t yet have the experience to know that the feelings of despair won’t actually consume you the way you feel like they will.


Hey there guys and gals. I’m back I promise! I was out travelling to the mid-west visiting my family and my alma mater. My brother graduated again so I was, of course, there to support him. Very, very proud of him. I missed my family quite a lot. I only get to see them 4 times a year. It’s a bit overwhelming seeing my ENTIRE family even if it isn’t very big (parents, brother, sister, sister's bf, 3 aunts, 2 uncles, 2 out of 3 cousins).  Unfortunately it didn’t leave much time for blogging. I’ll try to make up for it!

  1. thanks...what i needed to read. my narcipath & I have had a falling out which feels rather final. I feel like there is a gaping hole in my chest where half of my heart and all of my stomach live. The pain was excruciating the first day, but seems to be fading. I'm managing to eat a little, here & there. No crying tho--very odd. If anyone could weigh in on the physical aspects of losing a narcipath, i'd appreciate it.


Leave me a comment! It makes me feel good and less paranoid about talking to myself =)
