in the film “garden state,” the first song that plays is “don’t panic” by coldplay. in the book “the hitchhiker’s guide to the galaxy,” by douglas adams, the literal guide to the galaxy has the phrase “don’t panic” written in large, friendly letters on the cover. in reality, i have a bit of an anxiety problem. done in black ink, times new roman font, above my inner right elbow (the lines are cleaner and very crisp in person, i promise).

Sure, I’m sad, but I’m not looking to soothe that sadness by replacing it with a new relationship. Women are allowed to be sad, and they’re allowed to be single, and they don’t need to hear that one day a man is going to make it all go away by telling her she is good enough again. She’s good enough as she is.
