Ava? Not so much.
I also wanted to share a quote that I just read a few days ago. BTW, the new Jodi Picoult book is only so-so. I had a hard time believing the characters were falling in and out of love as fast as they were (married, divorced, and remarried within like six months) but it was all right. Not her best (My Sister's Keeper and 19 Minutes) and certainly not her worst (this crapfest called Picture Perfect that I read and read and read for TWO MONTHS and didn't even get halfway finished!!!) just in the middle. BUT, one of the characters said something I liked, in response to her daughter crying because the daughter was helpless.
"You're not helpless. You just need help. There's a big difference."
I might be paraphrasing a tiny bit, my kindle died before I could look it up and get it perfect. But still, isn't that nice? I myself don't really have a problem asking for help (as I'm sure any of the boat wives who I call and cry for help REPEATEDLY will be able to tell you) but I know that a lot of people do. There' s nothing wrong with asking for help!!! If you need help, you need help. You know? Needing help does NOT make you some helpless loser who can't get her crapola together! It just makes you someone who NEEDS HELP.
What's so wrong with that?
Wow. I'm so deep.
