the dark side

The sun coming through the clouds in eastern Nepal

"I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I'm out of control, and at times, a little hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best."
— Marilyn Monroe


I found that quote in a comment in response to Ms. Single Mama's blog post, My dark side, which I soooo related to! She has been a single mom of a young boy for a while now, and blogs about dating and parenting but just recently has fallen in love. She writes about the push-pull of pushing someone away because it's so much easier to be single, and the things you say that you really don't mean, and the fear, and all that is involved in risking one's heart again.
