An ex boyfriend used to hit me, lock me up, starve me and kept me astranged from everyone I knew and loved for 3 long years.
It is no excuse to go and hurt anyone, though.
My parents heavily favoured my younger sibling over me and that really bruised my confidence and gave me abandonment issues I’ve had to deal with in my life…but that is no excuse to hurt anyone.
I’m an avid Crime/True Crime watcher so I watch a lot of shows/YouTube videos about crime. Just lately, I’m seeing a trend of “I was badly abused/deeply hurt/lonely so I snapped and killed someone…please pity me” Crime stories.
As much as I want to show compassion, I don’t think there’s ANY excuse for taking the life of anyone else. Perhaps in self defence if it came down to survival…but I can’t think of any other reason it would be understandable. I really can’t.
I know for a fact that there are people who have suffered the pits of hell and are the most kind, thoughtful, creative, lovely people I’ve ever met. They don’t use their struggle and heartache as an excuse to kill anyone. Because there isn’t one.
Just wanted to rant to you all. Lol.
Thanks for bearing with me xx
