On The Brighter Side

Dear Yuri,

We’ve been arguing a lot lately in my house, with my mom, my brother and my sister. In as much as arguing feels/is negative, I realised that I’m lucky to have the freedom to oppose and express myself, all my feelings in this house as this isn’t always the case in every household. Usually, outside my home, I just have to bottle all of it in but in this house I’m aloud to explode. I realise that with this freedom I also have the responsibility to resolve our disputes, to respect everyone, accept my faults and to not abuse this freedom.
