Truth. Sometimes it's hard to control your own emotions as a parent. Just imagine how kids feel when they can't communicate or understand their feelings! Have to listen and "listen" to what they are saying.
If someone treats you bad, just remember that there is something wrong with them, not you. Normal people don't go around destroying other people. Never let someone with the significance of a speed bump become a roadblock in your life!
You can not change the people around you. But you can change the people that you choose to be around. Some people are just toxic to your life, and it doesn't mean that they are bad people. It just means that your lives are going in two different directions, and that the only way you both can live your best lives is to split apart so that you both may have room to grow.
I am beginning to realize that there really is no such thing as a "normal" person. Most people are hurting for some reason or another, and if they aren't, someone close to them is . . . So whatever this elusive state of "normal" is out there that we all seem to be striving after as a lofty goal of someday . . . I think I'll settle for weird. It's the me I need to be for me right now, and that's not all bad.
