I don’t like compliments, and I don’t see why a man should think he is pleasing a woman enormously when he says to her a whole heap of things that he doesn’t mean.
The next time you feel you have to defend something about yourself, ask yourself, why am I feeling I must defend this? … Do not feel you must say anything. Be who you are. Do not try to be perfect all the time.
— Long day?
— Just starting.
