Lynda Barry on love

“There are rotten people in the world that cannot be cured by magical hippy love. They will always be the way they are and if they are friends/romantic partners/parents/co-workers/dude who just cut you off in his Acura/ GET AWAY FROM THEM! DO NOT LINGER! You cannot fix Dracula by trying to convince him to just party in the sun with you.

This is what I wish I knew earlier. Bad people, jerks, sociopaths, and narcissists are always among us. Back away and run. Do not try to help them with your loyal love.

Run! Now! Go!”

— Lynda Barry
