My world is shifting.
Things have been said and done that can not be taken back.
Apologies were exchanged but I don't believe you meant the words that crossed your lips.
You were too violent the night before.
So many things said out of anger and hatred.
I am not now, nor will I ever be scared of you.
I know you could care less about my opinion. That is apparent with every argument that has been had. It is acceptable for everyone else to speak their mind until it comes to me. As soon as I open my mouth, if it is not in agreement with you, the shit hits the fan.
I am here to tell you that this will no longer happen.
I will no longer be manipulated to agree with you simply because if I don't, there will be an argument.
You will no longer hold me back.
I have to take a stand. I can not let my daughter think that this is normal. That this is how people treat one another. That her opinion means nothing.
I accepted your apology. I am big enough to be able to forgive.
I will never forget.
I am so thankful that your son is nothing like you.
