I am not a fan of Eat, Pray, Love at all. In fact I thought the book was silly, the movie even more more retarded, but here I am, drawing inspiration from Liz. C’est la vie, never say never.
“When I get lonely these days, I think: So BE lonely, Liz. Learn your way around loneliness. Make a map of it. Sit with it, for once in your life. Welcome to the human experience. But never again use another person’s body or emotions as a scratching post for your own unfulfilled yearnings.”
― Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love
So now I think too: BE lonely, Amanda. Learn that to make your way home every day, alone, is something normal. But make a map, instead, of places you will visit together some day. And in the meantime, work like a dog (because no one’s home waiting for you anyway) until you meet again.
The book he made me 🙂
