If one's different, one's bound to be lonely. - Aldous Huxley

My sweet precious darlings.

They are different in many ways, but that loneliness - isn’t it the same? The feeling of being excluded, of not belonging, of being feared by people you wanted to trust - it hurts. It hurts when you turn back and there is no one there, willing to catch the ball you send, to see the game continue, or for the sound of the ball hitting the mitt once again.

Sometimes, it isn’t easy, or fulfilling, to be the best there is.

I’ve always actually been pretty good in terms of the girls I’ve gone out with. They’ve all been pretty great. I don’t have any exes that I look back on and go, ‘Oh, that person was nuts’. I’ve always gone out with really good people and I’m still, if not friends with, on friendly terms with all of them.
I find the idea that life should just be one big long string of people that you’ve hurt and can no longer speak to and have cut out of your life, far too painful to ever let that become a reality,” he adds. “Because that’s the thing, once you’ve loved somebody, even if you’ve changed and they’ve changed and things move on, there’s still a part of you that loves that person, and so it would always seem a shame to look back on them with scorn.
