should we all be so lucky.
Aight. I shall.

To grow up with an abusive mother, a neglectful father, and a bigot for a brother? You have questionable standards.

Do you think I’m “lucky” to be “loved” by people who intentionally hid my CSA from me for 30 years, because they didn’t want to have to deal with the consequences, thus causing my PTSD to become incurable C-PTSD? I have to assume yes, if you think the author was “lucky” for her abusive upbringing.

Kindly stop projecting your personal family issues, whatever they are, on people like us. Your experiences “don’t hit home”.
