Step-motherly – that’s how life treats you sometimes. You know, how you see in the movies or fairy tales? You know you’re not any less lovable. You know you’re not any less talented or beautiful or correct. At times, in fact, you (and some others too) know that you’re the better one. But you don’t get treated right any ways. You don’t ask for too much either. But they’ll spare no chance to put you down.
Don’t give in to them. It’s not you. It’s them. Don’t succumb.
