I’m determined to soak in every precious moment with my family, despite how crazy they make me. They overlook my flaws. They’re my family and I really do love them. It’s not their fault I let them think I actually wanted to live the life they thought was best for me. Rather than telling them I wanted something different, I took the easy way out. I bit my tongue and went along with the people-pleasing path of least resistance, resenting them for something they were never even aware was happening. Dammit! I came back here to make a stand, determined to fight for my rights, and I’m realizing this was a trap I built for myself all along.
