My daughter has a very skewed view of reality, too. I’ve straight up stop putting up with it. “Yes, you experienced trauma. Yes, you felt displaced. Yes, you have a right to feel hurt about anything you choose to. But at some point you will have to realize the only person responsible for your happiness is you. And you’ll choose to be happy, or you won’t. And I have no power over that, and I won’t be responsible for it. “

I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know I want it to be spelled right and punctuated correctly. I guess that’s something.
