“you know what it’s like to be told how lucky you are to be someone’s prisoner? to be told how much you owe them?” this line struck me amidst an episode of game of thrones.
the quote set me aflare. it gave light to how i feel to have my mother as my mother.
after all the things that happened between me and her, i decided to keep distance. people often tell me that even if i turn the world upside down, she’s still my mother and that she deserves to be treated like one.
but every single person that has told me that has met better circumstances.
it hurts to be reminded again and again of things i try my best to forget. all these mouths blathering out words they think are wisdom.
if only they were in my place, they’ll learn why i chose what i chose.
a person like her makes you cautious.
when you see lightning, expect thunder.
