Being Erica Dr tom Quotes
I had a girl do this to me once before “Why are you Jealous of Eric? He’s not even remotely on my mind. Stop being insecure.” She said after I had thought to ask her about their oddly close relationship. About two weeks later she decided to end it between us and said it was because she needs to focus on herself for a while.
She hadn’t deleted me off facebook so her status change to in a relationship with Eric did no go un-noticed by me later that day.
Am I angry that she wanted to break up? No, some people just are not meant to be and her heart was obviously somewhere else. Continuing that relationship would have only brought myself and her grief. My problem was that she wasn’t honest about it till the end and called me things like “Insecure” or “Controlling” when I asked where she was going so late at night.
Which I asked because her friend straight up told me she was seeing Eric behind my back while we were going out. (Which later turned out to be true) Eric and I met once after the breakup and he was so proud of the fact that he had been doing her while she was with me. It doesn’t feel good to find out you were cucked most of your relationship. So I really feel for this Ryan guy. Really hit home.

Being Erica — the end. I have been inspired, and then some…
“Change. Sometimes it sneaks up on you. Sometimes it hits you over the head. And sometimes you turn a corner, only to find you’re different in some small way, and the world doesn’t look quite like it used to…”
“Have you ever felt at home in a crowd? Like you are part of something bigger and you felt this amazing energy? That happens when people come together. How despite the superficial differences, you know that deep down we are all the same. We have the same secret needs and the same wild dreams. We walk around thinking our secret pain or our secret joy is so unique, when really, we just want the same things. To be happy, to be safe, and to be loved.”
“The point…is that you place…[person/group/demographic]… down here, and you place yourself up here. And you say: that is not me, I could never be like that. No, that person is other, is undeserving, a monster. It’s an old story, it’s how wars begin, people turn on each other. And you know it starts so simply, too. I am not you, I am nothing like you and it is each time a lie because underneath all the layers of fear and protection, we are at our core, the same. We have the same needs and we carry with us the same capacity for good and evil.”
“Life is too short to wake up with regrets. So love the people who treat you right. Forget about the one’s who don’t. Believe everything happens for a reason. If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said life would be easy, they just promised it would be worth it. ”
“Sarcasm:the last refuge of modest and chaste-souled people when the privacy of their soul is coarsely and intrusively invaded.” – Dostoievski
“We tend to see the world through the prism of our own reflection. We assume without even thinking that people are like us.”
“They say relationships are everything. They are the glue that binds us together, bring joy and pain in equal measure; and it can be hard to navigate the differences, to be compassionate and forgiving and gentle with one another.”
“Trading fantasy for reality, and you might feel like Alice back from Wonderland. The world may not sparkle and shine, but the ground will be solid beneath your feet, and your eyes will be opened to all of the adventures that lie waiting for you right here in the real world.”
“They say that without risk there is no reward…perhaps it goes further than that. Without risk there is no exploration.. No discovery… No delight. So don’t waste time. Take a risk. See what comes.”
“What doesn’t bend breaks. You need to bend in order to survive in the world; conversely, if you bend too far, you break. The trick is knowing when to bend and when not to.”
“The heart wants what it wants. It forces us to act when reason dictates otherwise, it tears down walls, breaches boundaries, and for better or worse, it leads us places that the head…would never go.”

Being Erica Quotes Season 4
“Life works in funny ways. Just when you think you’ve got things figured out, just when it seems like everything is great… that’s when something happens. Something small. Something big. Something that makes us realize we aren’t in control and never were. Something that lands at our feet and leaves us speechless and unsure of where to turn and what to do. Something that blindsides us, leaving us gasping for air, no thought in our heads except “how could this be happening?” and “what do we do now?”.
The gift that life is laying for us is growth. It’s change. It’s the possibility that something good comes from pain and when the crisis hits, when our world is turned upside down, when we are afraid, will we have the strength, the wisdom to embrace the gift that’s there and welcome it with open arms?”
“Insecurity. It’s in all of us. That voice inside that tells us we can’t do something, that we aren’t good enough, that we shouldn’t even try. & when we listen to the voice, we hold ourselves back in ways we don’t even realize. All because we are scared to take a chance, to face our fears, to see what we are really capable of.”
Erica (Being Erica, S.4 E.2)
“They say we manifest our intentions, that we choose how we live. But if life doesn’t turn out the way you’d hoped, it makes you stop and wonder. “Did you ever really have a choice? Or is this just the way it was meant to be. How much of our lives can we choose and how much is just the way we are?”
“When you’re a kid, being grown up looks so easy. Nobody tells you it’s harder than it looks, that those feelings that you have that you don’t measure up, that you’re not keeping pace…they never go away. What do you do when you feel like you’re the only kid in a room full of adults? Well, the only thing you can do. You smile. You step up. You try your best to fit in”
“Sometimes, the only way to move forward is to stop moving. To stand still and to decide that, no matter what happens and no matter how much it hurts, you are exactly where you want to be.”
“Life they say, can turn on a dime. And in a world that constantly shifts beneath our feet, the only thing we can know for certain is how we feel, the love we have, the fear we hide from, the pain we push away. Give it a voice, and the rewards are piece of mind, and a peaceful heart.”
“Some things are true whether we want them to be or not; thoughts become words, words become actions, actions become habits, habits become character, and character? Well, character becomes destiny. It’s a hard thing to look deep down and examine our character, will we do the right thing even when no one is looking, when it’s not convenient, when it’s really hard? Will we do the right things simply because we have to, because it’s who we are, because it’s right…”
“Most of us think we know ourselves pretty well. Our hopes, dreams, desires. We cling so tighly to the stories we tell ourselves. Not realizing that what we really should do is let go. Let go of the belief that we’re invincible, let go of the idea we can’t do it on our own. Let go of the Fairy Tale. Because if we don’t let go, how can we move forward?”
“Growth is painful. Change is hard. And there are days when you wish it would just stop. Wouldn’t it be great to just know, to feel like you have finally figured it all out, to just be done? It is the hardest and the most wonderful thing about being alive: that it doesn’t matter how much you learn, grow and change – we are never done.”
“From the first moment we come into this world we feel pain and joy and fear and rage. We learn to hide the feelings that frighten us, first from others and then from ourselves. Many of us live our lives distant from our deepest feelings and never stop to wonder what would happen if we allowed ourselves to feel them fully, to express and share them with the world.”
“The fact is that getting the truth is not easily done. Too often it gets buried , misplaced or tucked away where no one can find it. The real question is : If one day you stumbled upon it, would you recognize it for what it was? They say that the truth will set you free, but I’m more interested in what they don’t say — that the truth hurts. That it can be dangerous. Revealing the truth… it’s like lighting a match. It can bring light, help you see more clearly, or it can set your world on fire. ”
“Desire…. It is the most powerful force on earth…the seed from which everything begins. It upends the best laid plans. It challenges who we think we are. It defies what we think we need. Desire is the root of impulse. It’s the fuel that drives us.. the very decor of who we are. Yet from our very earliest day we are taught to control it, to suppress it. But sometimes a little inversion can be a good thing.”
“At the end of the day, it comes down to this. The way we choose to see ourselves, it limits who we can be. Step outside the box, and you might learn something. Because we are more capable then we imagine. Because we all have it in us to do things we’ve never done before. Because sometimes we can surprise even ourselves”
