It’s hard to stand alone.
It’s even harder to stand alone when faced with insults, curses & sabotage.
Harder still when those things come from the people you love, and whom you thought loved you.
I do it for my son though.
I do it for my own peace of mind.
I’m making a life I can be happy with, a life my son can be happy with, one day at a time.
Sometimes it’s so hard being different from everything you’ve ever known.
But, when everything you’ve ever known is wrong, then what?
You start over, building on a new foundation of what you believe to be right.
You become the person you’d always hoped to find in the world.
You break the curse.
