You said

you said I was “too smart for my own good”

You said

you said I wasn’t really part of the family

You said

you said I didn’t belong there

You were right.

Yet…

You said

you said I was ugly

You said

you said I was deformed

You said

you said I was unlovable

You were wrong!

Spew your venom no more.

  1. You’ve met my family then.

  2. I’m so glad it ended with “You were wrong!” Obviously so!

  3. I was wondering if they had read it

  4. Just why does it take us so long to realize some others opinion – even those we thought we trusted – just don’t matter, because they were wrong?

    • Sometimes it is easy to see…others take longer. When it is the people who are supposed to love you the most, i.e. your family, it takes a bit longer. AND even when we see it, it is harder to accept.

  5. Funny how those sadistic monsters never see their own faces in their mirrors. Keep your wings out and your sharp sword in you hand.

    • ๐Ÿ™‚ So in catching up on recent ones you missed in the reader it looks like you stumbled across a couple from last year around this time ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for digging through.

      Oh and sword and claws are always sharp and ready ๐Ÿ˜‰
