I’m selfish, impatient, and a little insecure. I make mistakes; I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.
I’ve seen this quote bouncing around Facebook from time to time and, as much as I love Marilyn Monroe, I’m confused why people post it. First of all, why celebrate being difficult and unpleasant? Second, why take relationship advice from a woman who divorced three times, had affairs with three married men, and killed herself with an overdose in her thirties? Finally, and most importantly, why don’t men have quotes like these to share?
Here’s my attempt to remedy the third problem.
