"Maybe we like the pain. Maybe we're wired that way. Because without it, I don't know, maybe we just wouldn't feel real. What's that saying? Why do I keep hitting myself with a hammer? Because it feels so good when I stop." - Grey's Anatomy
"Smile away the fear of knowing the truth. Paint on a new face and lie your way through life. I can see you -- the untainted you --beautiful in a terrible way; A smile so dangerous it could break my heart."
"It was just one of those days when you can walk around fooling everyone into thinking you're happy and look back and notice that every time you smile or laugh there is a little pang of hurt in your heart because you know you are lying to the people who mean the most to you."
"and i hope i never improve my game, yeah i'd rather have these things weighing on my mind. and at the end of this tunnel of guilt and shame, there must be a light of some kind." - Ani DiFranco, 'light of some kind'
