A Crippling Goal

One: to love, and
two: to be loved.

I cannot have both goals

for pursuing the second
makes attaining the first

impossible.

As long as the self is consumed in the struggle to make itself lovely, it cannot love.

Mike Mason, as quoted in Cynthia Heald’s Becoming a Woman Who Loves
