Breaking free of the Martyr Complex

We are often taught, especially as women and mothers, that we are supposed to be self-sacrificing. That we aren’t good enough unless we are giving our all. This is not a fulfilling or healthy situation to be forced into.


Writing in anger

This isn’t fucking high school. It’s life. And there ain’t no one getting out alive. Suck it up and deal with your own shit without bringing me down.

Because I plan on living as happily as I know how and cultivating my good karma and enjoying my family and things I’ve worked fucking hard for.
