Mortification makes for very effective motivation

“People tell me, if I lost you, it wouldn’t be the end of the world. I don’t know how to tell them that you are my world.” – Vivica A. Fox, Why Do Fools Fall In Love

This makes me want to turn back time:

i'll never tell

PostSecret

It’s become easier over the past couple of weeks. Now that the humiliation and mortification of reality have really set in, thanks to the distractions, alcohol and many wise words and packs of Kleenex from Becca, they are the driving forces behind my renewed efforts to put it all behind me and start over. Two weeks from now, I would have spent a year of my life in this doomed cycle, thinking I could still regain control of myself, the circumstances, and the consequences.

But no more.

“I want to understand properly, Rasa Devi. I want to learn the rules of love and how to apply them. And if I can’t use them on the one I love… I’ll use them on the ones I don’t.” – Maya, Kama Sutra: A Tale Of Love
