Anne Lamott

“Jealousy always has been my cross, the weakness and woundedness in me that has most often caused me to feel ugly and unlovable, like the Bad Seed. I’ve had many years of recovery and therapy, years filled with intimate and devoted friendships, yet I still struggle. I know that when someone gets a big slice of pie, it doesn’t mean there’s less for me. In fact, I know that there isn’t even a pie, that there’s plenty to go around, enough food and love and air.

But I don’t believe it for a second.

I secretly believe there’s a pie. I will go to my grave brandishing my fork.”

–Anne Lamott (from Grace (Eventually): Thoughts on Faith)

They Are Playing At Not Playing A Game

Read this. Now try to tell me that your brain has not utterly turned to jelly. Say goodbye to any semblance of rational thinking you thought you had left in you.  You’re welcome.
