Hurt, Insulted, Belittled

"You're so incompetent."

"You really need to wear more makeup..."

"You're so lazy!"

"You should probably go to the gym more than three time a week. You could lose a few more pounds."

"You're never going to get into college."

"The difference between yours and your sister's bodies is that you have the thighs."

"You're a disappointment."

"You won't get anywhere in life."

"You never supported me!"

I could go on forever. After I supported her through her alcoholism? While she betrayed me? She broke my trust, and I still respected her. I still loved her. I still carried her through her life when she couldn't do it on her own. This is how I get paid in return when she sobers up? After everything I've done for her, she picks out all of my flaws, flaws that I didn't even know I had.

I thought I was doing alright. I've made such huge changes in my life, positive ones. This is how she recognizes those changes. This is how she supports me.

People don't appreciate the things we do and we blame ourselves for it
