by Whitney Cummings
Note: This isn’t all the annotations from this book. I made a lot. This book really spoke to me. Here are some of the annotations:
- Veggies should be crunchy
- When someone isn’t talking, my brain tends to fill in the blanks with how I feel about myself
- usually what I think I should do is wildly inappropriate
- “taking poison and expecting the other person to die.”
- As long as everything looks fine, everything is fine
- I’m at capacity and have no business taking on new friends.
- If you truly want to be nice to someone, cancel if that’s what you really want.
- you go where you look. (I highlighted this twice)
- that it’s my responsibility to provide my own joy
- emotional dyslexia (I highlighted this twice)
- survival skill of giggling when I was uncomfortable
- At least twice a week I fantasize about handling that situation differently.
- I’m more of an emotional gambling addict
- “hurt people hurt people”
- Denial is dangerous. Make sure you don’t have it.
- Be friends with people who accept you for who you are and don’t make you feel scared or insecure or as though you have to constantly work for their approval.
- full-blown hot mess, instead of the half-blown one I am now.
- when people talk to their dogs, they’re saying things they subconsciously need to hear.
- I basically ended up coaching a guy to be the best he can be for the next girl who came along.
- “It was great for a while. Then it stopped being fun, but I didn’t know how to stop.”
- Brain explode.
I swear this is about half the annotations from this book, which is three times what I normally have and I didn’t fully read the last chapter. I really liked this book! Gah I felt all the feels!
Annotations is a series of excepts from the books I am reading this year. When I finish each book I go through the lines I have marked and share them with you.
