My friend Ted called and asked what was up since we last spoke, I said some good stuff but then also mentioned John’s death, my dad’s death, my ankle, Monster’s death. He said I was kind of a downer.

Does it count as hate reading if it’s more like you are marveling at someone’s total fucking narcissistic delusions? It’s not nice, but is it hate?

I would not remove their delusions, I think they have constructed a life where they need the delusions to survive and not face reality. Reality is not that bad, but they don’t STAR in reality like they do in their delusions. No one points out the lies in their delusions. There is no accountability in delusions. I should ignore the delusions. But they just keep going.

“Leaving is not enough. You must stay gone. Train your heart like a dog. Change the locks even on the house he’s never visited. You lucky, lucky girl. You have an apartment just your size. A bathtub full of tea. A heart the size of Arizona, but not nearly so arid. Don’t wish away your cracked past, your crooked toes, your problems are papier mache puppets you made or bought because the vendor at the market was so compelling you just had to have them. You had to have him. And you did. And now you pull down the bridge between your houses, you make him call before he visits, you take a lover for granted, you take a lover who looks at you like maybe you are magic. Make the first bottle you consume in this place a relic. Place it on whatever altar you fashion with a knife and five cranberries. Don’t lose too much weight. Stupid girls are always trying to disappear as revenge. And you are not stupid. You loved a man with more hands than a parade of beggars, and here you stand. Heart like a four-poster bed. Heart like a canvas. Heart leaking something so strong they can smell it in the street.”

Let’s address the fallacy that a capacity for empathy is a necessary quality in a friend. A narcissist may also be a valuable companion.

"Don’t hang out with people who don’t love you. Don’t try to impress people who aren’t worth it…."

“Don’t hang out with people who don’t love you. Don’t try to impress people who aren’t worth it. Don’t try to win people over who aren’t worth it. Focus on yourself, and focus on the people who are really awesome and who love you. Don’t hang out with people who make you feel like shit. Don’t spend your energy on them.”
