HALEY JAMES SCOTT APPRECIATION WEEK ● Day 6 - Favorite relationship
”Nathan, it’s been said that there’s one word that will free us from the weight and the pain of life, and that world is love. And I believe that. That doesn’t mean that it hasn’t been hard, or that it won’t be, it just means that I’ve found a stillness and bravery in myself, with you. You make me brave. And I will love you until the end of time.”
You were so calm, explaining everything to everyone. I forgot how good you are in a crisis. Mom, you forgot because I’m the one usually causing the crisis. Well, that’s not true. Why is it so hard you to accept a compliment? Okay, thank you for your completely biased and totally unearned opinion on me. Was it something I did as a mother to make you like this? Mom, please don’t do the guilt thing, all right? I became an unemployed drug addict all by myself. Ex-drug addict. Recovering drug addict. You are completely incapable of seeing any of your own good qualities! And as far as being unemployed, that’s not your fault.
Dear Lucy, I'm sorry I maybe hurt your feelings..
