View Quote But you don't want a voice, you just wanna ****in' complain about not having a voice!
View Quote Getting divorced with a kid is one of the hardest things to do. It's like a death without a body.
View Quote I never really came alive for myself; I was only feeding his aliveness.
View Quote I want you to know that eventually this'll all be over, and whatever we win or lose, it'll be the two of you having to figure this out together.
View Quote People don't accept mothers who drink too much wine and yell at their child and call him an asshole. I get it. I do it too. We can accept an imperfect dad. Let's face it, the idea of a good father was only invented like 30 years ago. Before that, fathers were expected to be silent and absent and unreliable and selfish, and can all say we want them to be different. But on some basic level, we accept them. We love them for their fallibilities, but people absolutely don't accept those same failings in mothers. We don't accept it structurally and we don't accept it spiritually. Because the basis of our Judeo-Christian whatever is Mary, Mother of Jesus, and she's perfect. She's a virgin who gives birth, unwaveringly supports her child and holds his dead body when he's gone. And the dad isn't there. He didn't even do the ****in'. God is in heaven. God is the father and God didn't show up. So, you have to be perfect, and Charlie can be a **** up and it doesn't matter. You will always be held to a different, higher standard. And it's ****ed up, but that is the way it is.
