‘cause in the end i’m a sensible girl
I know the fiction of the fix
She knows that it’s easy to see herself as the victim in hindsight, but that in reality it’s more complicated.
When jonesing for a ‘fix’ an addict believes that their next hit will literally “fix” everything — their nausea, anxiety, and whatever other pain they’re hiding from, but it’s only a temporary thing; a lie one tells oneself, really. She understands that seeing her ex is never a good idea and that it isn’t sensible or healthy for either of them.
