He spins that stuff into comic gold, but always with heart. He's mocking himself, and, in the process, mocking anyone (i.e. you, me, and everyone on the planet) who gets maudlin when the heart is swollen. But it's gentle mocking, loving mocking, the kind that gives you perspective and, at least for me, helps you realize that the wormhole is never as devouring as it sometimes feels.
    I am definitely guilty of getting into my own head in general and it is ten fold after a break up. My inner narrative can get very warped and it would be great to be able to make light of the anxieties and insecurities.

    All About Love- bell hooks

    Honestly the only book I’ve read 3 times. I’ve bought it for 6 people and two of them as a wedding present (for him and her).
    It’s a great read for anyone going through a tough time or for someone who wants to be more mindful when it comes to relationships. Romantic or platonic.

    Also, did you know that the reason she doesn’t capitalize her name is because she doesn’t want to be seen as “better” than anyone else?
