Some books don't have all the answers.

 [My mom & me circa 1989.]

"According to most books, my lack of confidence is a 'sign I had an absent father,' and that's obviously not the case for me, cause dad is awesome. So then I just yell "Well now I can't trust anything you say!" at the *author,"-me to my mom today on the telephone. 
"Well, that isn't true. And don't be like those annoying parents who read all the books and think they know it all. Because a lot of it is based on going with what your heart tells you. You just have to have confidence."-my mom. 
"I don't know, I just think of all these negative things about myself. I can't help it."-me
"Really knock that shit off cause it's not true and it's making me mad.."-my mom, who keeps it real.

That's love.

*the author's name on the book cover, naturally. But I'd say it to their face, too! I would!
