First of all, thank you SO much for not only writing to tell me that, but also reading that post. Maybe I should have headlined it differently, because it’s extremely important to me and close to my heart (obviously, huh?) so ANY feedback is greatly appreciated.
Secondly…I don’t know how I can convey how much it touches me to have someone — even someone I’ve never met, on a Tumblr post — acknowledge that my situation is “seriously fucked up”. I love my family dearly, but to have them say things to me like “What did you expect? That’s just how your dad is.”, or “Why can’t you agree to disagree?” It’s such an…invalidation? I don’t know.
It hurts. A LOT. I guess that’s my point. To have someone — anyone — recognize that means the world to me.
And, since I’m in tears now…I’ll close with that. ; )
