"One of the more sobering realizations I’ve had as an adult is that there are two sides to the saying, “practice makes perfect.” You get better at everything you do, whether you like it or not. Playing piano? Sure. Rollerblading? Yup. But also lying, stealing, smoking, cheating on your partner, drinking, and all that crap that people do and regret. The more you do it, the more ingrained it becomes. The older you get, the harder it is to change."
"Girls were born knowing how destructive the truth could be. They learned to hold it in, tamp it down, like gunpowder in an old fashioned gun. Then it exploded in your face on a November day in the rain."
