Parents do not have needs. You ever read the book The Giving Tree? It’s about a tree, and this kid keeps coming and taking stuff from it his whole life, until there’s nothing left but a stump. And then the kid sits on the stump. That’s being a parent.
Welcome to the world, ladies! There are ax murderers and whores stuffed under every rug, so your kids better read up on it and get educated, because that’s what life is! It’s a cesspool you claw and scratch and fight to swim out of, but you never get to the top!
We come into the world the way we come into the world. It’s not our choice, but at least we’re here.
If someone’s always looking at you like you’ve done something wrong, talking to you like you’ve done something wrong, treating you like you’ve done something wrong, I mean, you start to believe that you’ve done something wrong!
