“You think they need support. You tell yourself they behave as they do because they are compelled by forces beyond themselves. Because of pain. You assume they would love you if you stood rock solid through all their turmoil, lasted all their confusion, withstood all their conflicts.
“You see an opening for yourself. You push yourself into it. Into this trap, this ditch, this quicksand. You know what are they? Needy. You know what you are letting yourself be? Mad. Delusional. Greedily needy.”
