The opinions of others were irrelevant to me

Wednesday, January 1, 2020

"I wasn’t used to being attacked like this and it was frightening. I thought of myself as an independent person, so independent that the opinions of others were irrelevant to me. Now I was afraid that Nick was right: I isolated myself from criticism so I could behave badly without losing my sense of righteousness. "

~ Sally Rooney, Conversations with Friends, 2017
