I think part of me knew the second I saw him that this would happen. It’s not really anything he said or anything he did, It was the feeling that came along with it. And the crazy thing is I don’t know if I’m ever gonna feel that way again. But I don’t know if I should. I knew his world moved too fast and burned too bright. But I just thought, how can the devil be pulling you toward someone who looks so much like an angel when he smiles at you? Maybe he knew that when he saw me. I guess I just lost my balance. I think that the worst part of it all wasn’t losing him. It was losing me.
“I learnt that it’s not our job to make people like us if they don’t want to. And when I learnt that, things got a little easier. And I guess every time someone has been mean to me I’ve tried to make a mental note that I would never intentionally make anyone else feel the way that they have made me feel. And if you did that, I think we could hope to make the world a little bit nicer place to live.”
“My career always involved being the person in charge of what I was portraying to people. “I never wanted to be an image of something I didn’t believe in, an image that somebody else had put together. The idea of that just really scared me, more than the idea of failing.”
