Everything worth doing has the possibility of ending in pain
No, it’s not the same. Juliet is treated like precious property. I take care of a mom too strung out to even notice me. But still—we’re both invisible. We’re both hungry to be seen.
People will always find a way to hurt each other. To use each other
There are a million and one things I could say. I could point out all she’s put me through. I could use all the labels she hates so much: manipulative, abusive, controlling. I wouldn’t be wrong.
I don’t recognize myself in the story. A part of me wants to; to be able to absolve myself of all responsibility. To be able to shake off the guilt, the shame. But some other, bigger part of me can’t let go of all the choices I’ve made in the last year. All the lies, all the mistakes.
