There’s so much I want to say about this series run—about how it tackles the subject of stories, their power, their pitfalls—but for now, just this. This bit right here. This bit broke me.
Some of my greatest failings in life have come from not loving myself the way I should. I imagine that’s true for a lot of people. The stories we tell ourselves do not always help us. But you can always begin again. You can always tell your story over. You can always choose to love yourself for what you are—even if no one else does. After all, if the god of lies can do it, right?
Be gentle with yourselves.
And read this comic if/when you get a chance. It’s fucking brilliant.
