“So I take a deep breath.
Step forward.
Let go.

10 seconds and I'm trying to breathe
And I'm trying to be brave
But the truth is I'm scared out of my mind
And I have no idea what's waiting for me behind that door
And I'm pretty sure I'm going to have a heart attack
But I can't turn back now
Because there it is
The door is right in front of me
All I have to do is knock
Butthe door flies open first.”
Tahereh Mafi, Unravel Me

“I count everything. Even numbers, odd numbers, multiples of 10. I count the ticks of the clock i count the tocks of the clock I count the lines between the lines on a sheet of paper. I count the broken beats of my heart I count my pulse and my blinks and the number of tries it takes to inhale enough oxygen for my lungs. I stay like this I stand like this I count like this until the feeling stops. Until the tears stop spilling, until my fists stop shaking, until my heart stops aching. There are never enough numbers.”

“We don't have to do anything at all to die... Living is more complex. There's one thing we always have to do. Breathe. In and out, every single day in every hour minute and moment we must inhale whether we like it or not. Even as we plan to asphyxiate our hopes and dreams we still breath. Even as we wither away and sell our dignity to the man on the corner we breathe. We breathe when we're wrong, we breathe when we're right, we breathe even when we slip of the ledge toward an early grave.”
Tahereh Mafi, Unravel Me

“В най-мрачните дни трябва да потърсиш светло местенце, в най-студените дни трябва да потърсиш топло местенце, в най-злощастните дни трябва да гледаш напред и нагоре, а в най-печалните дни трябва да отвориш очи, да им позволиш да леят сълзи. После да ги оставиш да изсъхнат. Да им дадеш възможност да отмият болката, за да виждат ясно отново.”
Tahereh Mafi, Unravel Me

“Копнеех да повярвам във вълшебните приказки и щастливите завършеци... и отворените врати. Копнеех да се попреструвам на по-добър човек, но вместо това успях да надхвърля дори кошмарния облик, който околните ми бяха изградили.”

Книгите - казва той [..] - са лесни за унищожение. Но думите ще са живи, докато хората ги помнят. Трудно е например да забравиш татуировка. [..] Май преходността на съвременния живот ни кара да бележим кожите си с мастило. - Казва той. - То ни напомня, че светът е оставил своята следа върху нас, че още сме живи. Че никога няма да забравим.”

“Самотата е странно нещо.
Промъква се до теб незабелязано, присяда на леглото ти в мрака и милва косата ти, докато спиш. Увива се около костите ти, затяга се така силно, че почти не можеш да дишаш, почти не чуваш пулса си, докато тя се разлива нагоре по кожата ти и докосва с уста меките косъмчета по тила ти. Оставя лъжи в сърцето ти, лъжи до възглавницата ти, изсмуква светлината от всеки ъгъл на стаята ти. Превръща се в твой вечен спътник, стиска ръката ти и те дърпа надолу точно когато опитваш да се задържиш на крака.
Сутрин се будиш с въпроса "Кой съм аз?" Нощем не мигаш, трепериш. Съмняваш се съмняваш се съмняваш се
или не
трябва ли
защо не мога
И дори когато си готов да я прогониш. Когато си готов да избягаш от нея. Когато си готов за съвършено нов живот. Самотата е старата приятелка, застанала до теб в огледалото, гледа те в очите, предизвиква те да заживееш без нея. Не намираш думи да се пребориш със самия себе си, да се пребориш с думите, крещящи, че не си достатъчно добър и никога, ама никога няма да бъдеш достатъчно добър.
Самотата е злостен, не възможен спътник.
Понякога просто отказва да те остави на мира.”
Tahereh Mafi, Unravel Me

“…понякога умираме, понякога сме на път да избухнем, понякога сме на 2 метра под земята и търсим прозорче, когато някой полива с бензин косите ни и подпалва лицата ни. Усещам как костите ми лумват в огън.”
Tahereh Mafi, Unravel Me
