"I don’t know what’s the matter with me, why I’m so adept at distance, why I feel so remote from things, why life feels like a rumor."

"You can’t find intimacy—you can’t find home—when you’re always hiding behind masks. Intimacy requires a certain level of vulnerability. It requires a certain level of you exposing your fragmented, contradictory self to someone else. You’re running the risk of having your core self rejected and hurt and misunderstood."
— Junot Diaz (via wordsthat-speak)
