Day 318

Updated: Jun 26, 2019

A colleague and friend told me that she had heard some colleagues of ours discussing how my situation was my fault.

I didn't know which part of my "situation" was to be blamed on me. Indeed, if I had the power to give someone a fatal brain tumor, it wouldn't be my daughter, Constance. I do not have that or any other supernatural powers. If I did, I would have picked inheritable immortality.

Possibly they meant it was my fault I didn't have more children. In a technical sense, this is true, but Constance's father didn't want to have more children, and I am not the type of person to surprise someone with a pregnancy they didn't co-sign for.

Maybe they merely meant that being in my thirties with no family, home, or future to speak of is my fault. I don't know. I didn't ask for clarification. I'd of preferred they not speak of me at all if they are are going to be so harsh and apathetic.
