Girls, romanticize yourselves. You are a queen. You are a warrior. You are an enchantress. You are a mermaid. You are a goddess. You are all of these things and more, you are the stuff of fairytales.
Women, traumatize others. You are a dragon. You are a wolf. You are a bump in the night. You are the last thing they see in the darkness. You are all of these things and more, you are the heart of their fucking nightmares.
You are not obligated to love abusive people,
that includes your parents and any other family members or authority figures. Don’t assume that if you are calm and rational they will be.
They never are. You don’t have to be around those people if you don’t want to be.
