I hate it when people make assumptions
when people make assumptions that a two parent family is necessary
when people make assumptions that I’m unhappy
When they project their feelings of unease about their own parental relations
When they make it seem like my parent’s divorce had something to do with me
I am not any different than them
we have the same GPA’s
We have the same SAT scores
We both got into college
We both went to summer camp
We both live in houses
We both eat dinner every night
Just because my parent’s don’t love eachother anymore
or that their marriage didn’t work
Didn’t leave me damaged
Didn’t make me lesser
I grew up in a happy
With a single mom who takes care of me.
Who provides me with everything that you have.
Don’t ever tell me
that I’ll learn from her mistakes and my relationships
will be more healthy
Because hers aren’t unhealthy.
So stop asking me if my mother dating
Makes me feel weird
It is only weird for you.
