Chuck Palahniuk

“The books on plastic surgery, the pamphlets and brochures all promised to help me live a more normal, happy life; but less and less, this looked like what I’d want. What I wanted looked more and more like what I’d always been trained to want. What everybody wants. Give me attention. Flash. Give me beauty. Flash. Give me peace and happiness, a loving relationship, and a perfect home. Flash. Brandy says, “The best way is not to fight it, just go. Don’t be trying all the time to fix things. What you run from only stays with you longer. When you fight something, you only make it stronger.” She says, “Don’t do what you want.” She says, “Do what you don’t want. Do what you’re trained not to want.” It’s the opposite of following your bliss. Brandy tells me, “Do the things that scare you the most.”
