“I'd rather be a bitch than a doormat.”
Jessica Zafra

“You can not make someone love you. You can not be thin enough or white enough or famous enough. The choice is entirely the other person's. Then again, you might try hypnosis.”
Jessica Zafra, Chicken Pox for the Soul

Jessica Zafra, Chicken Pox for the Soul
