“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.”
Yun Koga

Suits me fine.”

Ottessa Moshfegh
“I wanted to hold onto the house the way you'd hold onto a love letter. It was proof that I had not always been completely alone in the world. But I think I was also holding on to the loss, to the emptiness of the house itself, as though to affirm that it was better to be alone than to be stuck with people who were supposed to love you, yet couldn't.”
Ottessa Moshfegh, My Year of Rest and Relaxation

That she had become as awful as the rest of the world seemed to think she was. That she was unlovable.”
Nenia Campbell, Escape

“I traded my borders to fit all of your pain into my life. I gave up my peace to calm your chaos. I forgot my worth, so you didnt have to change. I forfeited the right to feel my pain, because it was to much for you to carry. I erased the idea of being loved because you said you're incapable. I stopped questioning because answering wasn't worth your effort. I surrendered my fight to be understood because you defeated me before understanding me.

A. Starr

“Darling, I’ve realised I don’t love you.

If I loved anyone, it would be you. But I love no one. 

I’ve come to understand I don’t care about anything except for myself.

Any kindness I’ve ever shown has been in my own self-interest.

The very existence of other people seems doubtful.

I wanted more from life than this.

Let’s have a baby.”

'I think it's pretty amazing that you haven't felt peer-pressured into doing anything by now. You haven't made yourself do anything you didn't want to do. You haven't kissed anyone just because you're scared of missing out. I think that's one of the most mature things I've ever heard, actually.”
