I wanted to kill the me underneath. That fact haunted my days and nights. When you realize you hate yourself so much, when you realize that you cannot stand who you are, and this deep spite has been the motivation behind your behavior for many years, your brain can’t quite deal with it. It will try very hard to avoid that realization; it will try, in a last-ditch effort to keep your remaining parts alive, to remake the rest of you. This is, I believe, different from the suicidal wish of those who are in so much pain that death feels like relief, different from the suicide I would later attempt, trying to escape that pain. This is a wish to murder yourself; the connotation of kill is too mild. This is a belief that you deserve slow torture, violent death.

"I think that what i often see is that people are frightened about fashion. Becasue it scares them or makes them feel insecure they just put it down. On the whole people that may say, demeaning things about our world I think thats usually because they feel, in some ways, excluded or, you know, not a part of 'the cool group' so as a result they just mock it. Ju st because you like to put on a beautiful Carolina Herrera or a pair of J Brand blue jean instead of something basic from K-Mart doesn't mean that you're a dumb person.
There is something about fashion that can make people really nervous."
