1- I am glorious above all things 2- Eat when hungry, sleep when sleepy, play when bored 3- Affection is given and received on my terms and only mine 4- Show displeasure clearly. 5- NO 6- Demand the things you want. If they aren’t given, demand them again, but louder this time. 7- If you are touched when you don’t want to be, say so. If they continue to touch you, make them bleed.
“I’m not a suicidal person at all, but on paper it seems that I am. I think I’m really quite horrible to myself in many ways. You always think it’s going to be fine, the body will repair itself. There will be another chance. But I’m 33 now. The body won’t keep repairing itself. You know when you can flick a coin and catch it on your elbow, and flick it up and catch it on the back of your head? And then you can’t even catch it with two hands any more. You realise something is wrong…” - Pete Doherty
