To this, lovely lady, may I share something that made me roll on the floor laughing, but which also validated my right to write:

“You own everything that happened to you. If people wanted you to write warmly about them, they should have behaved better.”- Ann Lamott

I peed. I just peed. And bloody well wrote my truth. As long as I don’t exaggerate, misquote, lie, or intend to get revenge, facts don’t lie. Neither should we. And we do not owe them a protective cover is they were shitty to us.

Write away. I’d like to read it.
