Mellie: If you could tell me that you had sex with those two boys because it made you happy, because you wanted to, because you felt empowered and turned on… Karen, I am your mother so inside I am having a tiny seizure, still I would try hard to be supportive and happy for you. I don’t think that’s why you did it, I think that you were sad, I think you were feeling numb, I think you thought feeling something was better than feeling nothing. I think your brother died right in front of you, which means… you get one free pass. This was it, you do not get another.

Deep down, no matter what face we present to the world, no matter what pain we’re hiding, no matter what struggle we’ve been through, we know our worth. We know what we’re capable of. We know who we are, who we’ll always be. And we have a choice. We can hide in the shadows or we can stand in the light.
