    “I’m glad you made your own decision.”
  5. #5
    “I have a history of making decisions very quickly about men. I have always fallen in love fast and without measuring risks. I have a tendency not only to see the best in everyone, but to assume that everyone is emotionally capable of reaching his highest potential. I have fallen in love more times than I care to count with the highest potential of a man, rather than with the man himself, and I have hung on to the relationship for a long time (sometimes far too long) waiting for the man to ascend to his own greatness. Many times in romance I have been a victim of my own optimism.”

    “So often, we pretend we’ve made a decision, when what we’ve really done is signed up to try until it gets too uncomfortable.”

  10. #10
    “For her, choices were simple; either there was an action she could take to improve the situation, in which case she took it, or there was not, and everything else said on the subject was so much meaningless noise.”

I learned to accept my decision for my own sake, because of me, not because of him. Because I needed it, not because he deserved it.”
  10. #20

  11. #21
