'The one you love and the one who loves you are never, ever the same person.'
Thoughts on this?
Chuck Palahniuk and Kurt Vonnegut are two of my favorite authors. I love their satirical writing and their dark writing. In this novel, Palahniuk has a very intriguing story going on. The main character was once the most beautiful girl in the world...until her face got blown off. Then she was "invisible" hence the title of the book. You travel along with her, and what happens is, her and two other characters write notes, read them aloud and throw them to the wind. It was almost like a "release" of sorts. The main character wrote that quote down on a piece of paper and threw it without allowing Brandy (another important character) to read it aloud. You find out why later. Palahniuk really knows how to throw curves at you in his novels. He's a fantastic writer.
The quote however, is unusually eye-opening and intriguing. It reminds me of guys who were really into me...maybe they would do anything for me, maybe not, and I just was not into them in that way. It, I'm sure, works the same way for some guys. Recently I put my all into someone who I was never really sure if he liked me or not anyways. I was pretty fiery around him but would essentially do anything he asked of me...even if I adamantly said no at first. It was almost like I saw this quote come to life, though not entirely. It makes me sad that I broke others' hearts due to my own desires being different, because I know how it feels. It's strange to me that life can work in such trying ways, but it is how we grow and develop. I have learned many things from heartbreak, and I always have a fear of someone coming on to me who I'm not genuinely interested in because I do not want to hurt them but inevitably it will happen and with time I hope I am better at handling such situations. Matters of the heart are heavy. I hate to think that I could ever be the cause of someone's pain.
