Quote of the Damn Day: Annie Lennox

[On romantic love. . . .]

It's a fine thing if you can get it, but then if you're a person like me, it will take you to a place of anxiety, because it can never be sustained. We want it – but when we get it, it's terrifying because you could be hurt, abandoned, and it's actually a really risky place to be.

Sounds like she would benefit from one of the 12 step recovery programs.

Christina Dear,
I am glad you are not a worrier, too!

Christiejolu,
I thought so. For me it is.

Syd,
Most of us would probably benefit from a recovery program. Life is hard.

Love to all,

SB

I don't care what anyone says, part of the rush of "romantic love" is the worry of being accepted, the fear/excitement of the unknown, anticipation, and then the release of all that energy when you finally get together.... That shit canNOT last. It's not in the nature of the whole experience for it to last. I'm sure that's why I was a serial monogamist for so long.... then I figured it out. Now I just have affairs when I want that feeling. hee hee! Not really.
