“No, I am not. I’m weak. And that’s why I pretend to be tough. If I let myself be weak, inside of myself, there’d be nothing left of me after a while. I think people shouldn’t be too easy on themselves. I need to be tough on myself because I’m weak, that’s all.” – Momoko Ryugasaki (Novala Takemoto), Kamikaze Girls
And the thing is there’s something comforting in the fact that nothing’s really permanent. that no matter what i’m going through, who i am, what i think, what’s happening around me, it can always change. maybe good times don’t last, but at least bad times don’t last either. maybe i’m unsatisfied with who i am, but i’m not stuck that way.
