Do not teach your children that if they open up to you about the scars on their bodies, the only thing they will get in return is punishment.

With a substance as a crutch

I’m sorry I have depression, I’m sorry I cry all of the time, I’m sorry I’m so negative, I’m sorry I’m not attractive, I’m sorry for being stupid, I’m sorry that I was born; I’m sorry I’m not enough.
