Wow so my mum sent me this article from some parenting site like ‘passive aggressive notes from parents to kids’ or whatever and one of them was that photo that went round tumblr awhile back, about the kid who missed curfew being locked out and made to sleep on the porch
And I just pointed out to her that I didn’t think some of the pics were funny at all and that I’ve read accounts from people who had shit like that done to them because they were literally being abused and she just goes
“Yes, well we don’t know the full story behind it do we?”
I don’t think you really need a full story behind someone LOCKING THEIR CHILD OUT AND MAKING THEM SLEEP OUTSIDE
SOMEDAY SOMEBODY’S GONNA MAKE YOU WANNA TURN AROUND AND SAY “GOODBYE!”. UNTIL THEN BABY, ARE YOU GOING TO LET THEM HOLD YOU DOWN AND MAKE YOU CRY? DON’T YOU KNOW THINGS CAN CHANGE? THINGS’LL GO YOUR WAY...IF YOU HOLD ON, FOR ONE MORE DAY! CAN YOU HOLD ON FOR ONE MORE DAY???? THINGS’LL GO YOUR WAY -- HOLD ON FOR ONE MORE DAY!!!
I just found out my birth mom was detained in a juvenile prison that was closed down due to human rights violations. They were consistently HUNDREDS over capacity and treated the youth there terribly. I saw some photos that would probably make you cry.
Apparently I was conceived one of the times she ran away (at age 14) and this is where she was when I was in orphanages. She has been through so much. Like, damn.
