Glennon Doyle Melton

  • Guilt says, 'I screwed up.' Shame says, 'I'm screwed up.'

    • Glennon Doyle Melton,
    • "Teachable Moment," in Woman's Day ()
  • During my drinking decades, I lived like a pig. My room was a hazardous pile of stilettos, tube tops, wine bottles, ashtrays, and old magazines. I valued nothing. Everything that came into my life was disposable: clothes, opportunities, people. My bedroom looked as if my insides had spilled out onto the floor.

  • I was what they call a 'highly functional addict.' ... sometimes people who need help look nothing like people who need help.

Glennon Doyle Melton, U.S. writer

(1976)
