My Mother Doesn't Understand

I can't be a lady and cross my ankles. I can't just not say a word when others say what they want to me. I can't butter up things to make someone feel better when they won't even help themselves. I can't allow my son to be hurt emotionally by his father and stand by and say nothing because he's a ***** donor and a glorified babaysitter once a week. I can't stand it when my sister leaves her kid alone to cry because she doesn't want it. I can't let my life just...take me where it will because life is what you make it, not the other way around. I can't stand this house and won't stay here when it's not my mortgage. I can't continuously make other's happy because happiness is a choice. I can't worry about everyone else but myself, because if I do there won't be a myself to worry about. I can't stand aside while people ruin their lives.

But I can say something about it.

Wow, what a situation. Be yourself and make the right choices for yourself and your child. Give advice when you can, state the truth and stay calm and reserved. Sometimes it is best to walk away if you can. I do not know your particulars, but I wish you ll the best in the world!
