because i am a fool who likes to keep her struggles to herself and covertly sewn into metaphor i’m hesitant to buy self-help books primarily because the problems that you’re facing! that you want to address! are written in large cursive font all over the cover. and i am still too ashamed and upset about past things to place my issues with pride on my bookshelf.
