"find pieces of myself everywhere, and I cut myself handling them."
"Know that the ungrateful are never successful."
Others say they can’t notice it but my nose has been slightly crooked ever since she broke it. The following week I covered up the black eye with makeup so that I could go to work and the house mom told me, leave her. No one should be putting their hands on you. She gave me that look, strong. Became hard to trust myself when I stayed 6 more months after that. It only got worse. I had to love myself more. I had to be better than before. I’m still working at it. Healing takes time. Healing takes as long as it takes.
