“It is very painful, I think, to be told: ‘You enchanted the world for me, you made me feel things I never knew I could, now please be normal at dinner.’ We are always saying this to people in one way or another, of course; maybe we have to.”
– Brian Phillips, “Run to the Devil: The Ghosts and Grace of Nina Simone”
I’m calling bullshit on this. There is no “have to”. You don’t have to. You just think you have to. Please stop.
