Why I Love Marilyn Monroe's Selfish Quote

  “I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.” ― Marilyn Monroe I love this quote because I tend to be out of control. Sometimes I can’t help it.
