Just because you came out of your mother’s body does not give her a right to destroy yours.
Your father is supposed to at least help pay for your education; paying for your rights does not mean he’s allowed to scream at you for being useless.
Defending yourself is not talking back.
You should be able to feel happy about coming home after school.
If it doesn’t feel right,
if it upsets you,
it’s probably not right.
Blood is thicker than water,
but if blood is hurting you,
you are not obligated to love it.”
