“Sometimes people will pretend you’re a bad person so they don’t feel guilty for the things they did to you”…

It’s sad for me to have to admit that I have experienced this. Some people will treat you badly, it’s just a fact of life. Some people don’t know any better. What’s important is how you a) treat yourself after such an experience and b) treat others. Having the capacity to like and love yourself and others after enduring years of abuse and pain is nothing short of a miracle.

I learned that from my mother.
