When another person makes you suffer, it is because he suffers deeply within himself, and his suffering is spilling over. He does not need punishment; he needs help. That’s the message he is sending.

It’s all messy:
Maybe home is nothing but two arms holding you tight when you’re at your worst.
Don’t waste your time explaining who you are to people who are committed to misunderstanding you.
