And when you leave, don't ever return to a person. Because no matter what the relationship will never be the same. Unless it is an unearthly love, mom will always love you and always welcome you with open arms.
It didn't matter what people thought about her. Her focus was never on small talk. She had better things to do with her life, like become a better woman. She didn't care what people said behind her back because most of them never had the guts to say it to her face anyway. She didn't care if people believed in her, or if they were going to pick up and leave. What she offered was more than good enough and anyone who wanted to walk away from that... Well, that was on them.
