 "But if you ... imagine a person defined by a desperation to be liked, what do you see? You see a person without integrity, without a center. In more pathological cases, you see a narcissist — a person who can’t tolerate the tarnishing of his or her self-image that not being liked represents, and who therefore either withdraws from human contact or goes to extreme, integrity-sacrificing lengths to be likable." -Jonathan Franzen

Tomorrow, I'm actually gonna sit down and hammer out all my recent frustrations with Facebook a la Megan Robinson and my own crumbling mental health. For now, I'm going to drink more wine and go to bed.

I don't know how he does it, but I swear, Jonathan Franzen looks directly into my fucking soul: http://www.nytimes.com/2011/05/29/opinion/29franzen.html?_r=1&pagewanted=all

I'm sure other people feel like he does that to them, too.

Which is why he's so loved.

I'm sobbing right now.
