“Other people don't exist just to be your happy ending, you know?”
Kelly Loy Gilbert, Picture Us in the Light

“It’s a strange and uniquely painful thing when you try to reach someone and instead you pass right through them, like a ghost; it makes you feel not all the way there yourself.”
Kelly Loy Gilbert, Picture Us in the Light

“It's hard not to lose your foothold when someone peers inside you, sees all those things you tried the hardest to keep hidden, all those ugly shames you've tried to tell yourself aren't really as bad as they seem. All those lies disintegrate in the light.”
Kelly Loy Gilbert, Picture Us in the Light
