Fred and Rose West

“A married couple, they sexually abused, tortured, and beat their child and teenaged daughters and other women, eventually killing several of their own children, along with other women, and burying them under the patio in their own garden. Absolutely sickening. Unlike many husband-wife murderer pairs, the wife, Rose, was completely in on it and took pleasure in the murders, committing some alone while her husband was in prison, rather than just being an accomplice.

Apparently, Fred would threaten his surviving children that they would “end up under the patio like Heather” (his own daughter, who they beat to death because they didn’t like the look on her face) if they misbehaved.” — 360Saturn

Trace the scars life has left you. It will remind you that at one point, you fought for something. You believed.

“You are the only person who gets to decide if you are happy or not—do not put your happiness into the hands of other people. Do not make it contingent on their acceptance of you or their feelings for you. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter if someone dislikes you or if someone doesn’t want to be with you. All that matters is that you are happy with the person you are becoming. All that matters is that you like yourself, that you are proud of what you are putting out into the world. You are in charge of your joy, of your worth. You get to be your own validation. Please don’t ever forget that.” — Bianca Sparacino
