Are you sure you have someone pegged?

Ever heard this one? “Hurt people hurt people.”

It explains a lot, doesn’t it? And it excuses nothing.

Once upon a time the bravest person I knew suddenly and summarily distanced herself from a wide swath of her inner circle. The reaction was swift: “Who does she think she is?”

I knew her pretty well back then. I knew her to be someone who knew what she needed to be healthy. It was life or death. She chose life. She’s still choosing life, from what I hear. She stopped the cycle. Her kids will grow up with a shining example of how to take care of themselves. Because it isn’t so much about how you treat your children, as they say. It’s how you treat you.
