I appreciate the way my parents raised me
I watched tv a lot and when I was 8 or 9 I asked what rape was. They told me it was forcing someone to have sex with you.
This was before I even knew what sex was and they wouldn’t answer when I asked them.
BUT THEY TAUGHT ME THAT RAPE WAS BAD BEFORE I EVEN KNEW WHAT SEX WAS
We all forget JUST how badass Tarzans REAL parents were….
For instance they:
. Fucking survived a sinking ship (something Leonardo DiCaprio and half the passengers of the Titanic couldn’t figure out)
. Did i mention the fact that the boat was on FIRE!
. Did that shit WITH A INFANT CHILD! most young couples cant even sign WIC papers on their own
. Built a fucking tree fort out of soggy burnt ship wood LIKE A BOSS!
. Built that shit BY THEMSELVES with a BABY
. Kept the baby alive in desperate times
. They left their kid still became successful, fuck statistics
A Real Parent's Sacrifice
The only thing I remember about being on food stamps when I was little, was that my mom bought groceries with funny little slips of paper instead of money. Not once in my childhood, if that’s what you want to call it, do I remember life being difficult. I still got toys at Christmas and on my Birthday, I never went hungry, and even got a happy meal once and a while.
Why is this important? Because it shows my mother’s love for us, to sacrifice so much to bring my sister and I up with a sense of semi-normalcy. She’s amazing for it.
