“Other people can’t make you feel stupid. Only you can.”
― Julie Buxbaum, Tell Me Three Things

 “SN: you know what I think about sometimes?

Me: What?

SN: you know that piece of hair that always falls into your eyes—the not-quite-a-bang piece? I want to be able to tuck it behind your ear. I want to be able to do that. I want to meet you when I feel comfortable enough with you to do that.

Me: You are so weird.

SN: you are not the first person to say that.

Me: Am I the first to say that I really like that about you?”
― Julie Buxbaum, Tell Me Three Things

“I don’t even want to spend the rest of my life with me.. how do you explain to someone you love that you can’t give yourself to them because if you did, you’re not sure who you’d be giving? That you aren’t sure what your own words are worth? You can’t tell someone that, especially someone you love. And so you don’t.

Instead, I do the right thing. I lie.”
― Julie Buxbaum, The Opposite of Love

 “He’s more like me, I think: burdened with the realization that what goes on his mind is somehow different from what goes on everyone else’s. Even those close to us. And how you can’t think about that for too long, because that thought- the truth of your own isolation- is too much to bear.”
― Julie Buxbaum, Tell Me Three Things

 “One of the worst parts about someone dying is thinking back to all those times you didn’t ask the right questions, all those times you stupidly assumed you’d have all the time in the world. And this too: how all that time feels like not much time at all.”
― Julie Buxbaum, Tell Me Three Things

 “Perfect days are for people with small, realizable dreams. Or maybe for all of us, they just happen in retrospect; they’re only now perfect because they contain something irrevocably and irretrievably lost.”
― Julie Buxbaum, Tell Me Three Things

“Wake up. This is your life, for God sakes. It’s time to face up to it. You can’t get anywhere, can’t get over anything, if you don’t let yourself feel anything in the first place. It’s time.”
― Julie Buxbaum, The Opposite of Love

 “Just because you’re strong doesn’t mean you shouldn’t ask for help sometimes. Remember that.”
― Julie Buxbaum, Tell Me Three Things

― Julie Buxbaum, Tell Me Three Things

One Final Bonus – Julie Buxbaum Quote 

“I miss the way he used to kiss my shoulder whenever it was bare and he was nearby. I miss how he cleared his throat before he took a sip of water and scratched his left arm with his right hand when he was nervous. I miss how he tucked my hair behind my ear when it came loose and took my temperature when I was sick or when he was bored. I miss his glasses on my nightstand. I miss watching him take Sunday afternoon naps on my couch, with the newspaper resting on his stomach like a blanket. How his hands stayed clasped, fingers intertwined, while he slept. I miss the cadence of his speech and the stupidity of his puns. I miss playing doctor when we made love, and even when we didn’t. I miss his smell, like fresh laundry and honey (because of his shampoo) at his place. Fresh laundry and coconut (because of my shampoo) at mine. I miss that he used to force me to listen to French rap and would sing along in a horrible accent. I miss that he always said “I love you” when he hung up the phone with his sister, never shy or embarassed, regardless of who else was around. I miss that his ideal Friday night included a DVD, eating Chinese food right out of the carton, and cuddling on top of my duvet cover. I miss that he reread books from his childhood and then from mine. I miss that he was the only man that I have ever farted on, and with, freely. I miss that he understood that the holidays were hard for me and that he wanted me to never feel lonely.”
