They ruin days that aren’t all about them with fights and anger.
Thank you for showing not everything lasts — and that is actually okay. That can actually lead to growth.
No matter where you are, or how long you’ve been broken, you are strong. And you will get through this.
Why is there some unbreakable rule that says I should remain loyal to my family members no matter what they do, no matter how horribly they treat me?
Pain is not meant to end you. Bad days are not all there is. Weakness is not what defines you. And the broken pieces of you do not reflect who you are.
I just sit, frozen, feeling terrified for all the animals and humans of this world who are abused by the pain that is not theirs — it’s enough to turn one mad.
No matter how wonderful your own intentions this holiday season, you have zero control over what others will do. You can’t make people accept you.
I wish it wasn’t pain that had to shape you into someone so beautiful. But sometimes that’s how it works. Sometimes the most beautiful people are the ones who have seen a lot of ugly things.
Interestingly, it’s your fist hitting me that made me realise how many lies you had been feeding me.
I won’t let you convince me that this abuse is what I deserve.
