"Don’t say you hate your fam-" No.
"Omg you should love your fami-" No.
"Be grateful they’re your famil-" No.
If you have been bullied, hit, teased, put down, hurt, lied to, or hated by your own family; you don’t need to justify how you feel. You don’t need to explain yourself. You are allowed to hate a family member or dislike a family member if they’ve given you a reason to.
this is so fucking important
I sometimes have to remind myself this is a small town newspaper for gods sakes. Not everything has to be written like an over dramatic play…
Today is the day I am saying “no more”
No more hating myself
No more feeling unworthy
No more demands for perfection
Allowing myself to be imperfectly perfect
I don’t need horrible people in my life
What better day for such a change than Valentines Day
I bought a cheap composition notebook today. I don’t know why I bought it, I still have a journal that needs to be filled. It was then I realized that to break through something, to really begin to feel better; is to lock away that hate. Save that journal for later.
Sometimes it takes an actual blank page to let us know its all going to be okay. To start the story fresh for recovery.
