This woman is my mood.
This man kicked his own 14 years old little girl out of her home because of her sexuality.
But before he did that, Maggie, 14 year old confused girl, was rejected / exposed / humiliated by her B.E.S.T friend. She had nobody left but her family.
And rather that being a protecting father, reassure her after taking a few deep breaths for his existence… he just got rid of her. Why ? Because 14 years old Maggie was in love with another 14 years old girl.
But he dares to show up in her life again ? After like what… 15 years ? And she HUGS him right away ?
And I don’t care how he got here, if Alex called or Maggie called. That’s not my point.
To all the 14 years old Maggie out there ( of all ages, all genders, all sexualities, all VALID identities… you get my point ) you don’t have to welcome these people back in your life. You CAN say no to hugs and smiles and good manners, because what they did to you is not supposed to be so easy to forgive, or something you just put on the side to not make a scene…
Actually, you can even think and believe that it’s not forgivable. And your non-forgiveness is valid. As valid as your true self. As valid as the person they rejected.
Anyways, I hate this asshole already, and I hate that Maggie has to “give him a second chance” to realize he’s still an asshole and that shs gets hurt again…
Stay valid. And hold on to it.
