I am afraid I will pass down the ways I’ve been hurt and harmed in the world by parental figures.

I often feel as though it is obvious I am walking around like a big, open wound.

I have a feeling that everything I do in this world is somehow a way of trying to understand what it’s like to have a mother.

Perhaps this, too — my life and obsession with The Mother — will fade from context.
