Quotes by Jessica Berger Gross

"Still, I’ve come to believe there are times when a family is so broken it can’t be put back together, or mended — times when the repair job isn’t worth the price. But that assessment isn’t to be made lightly, and cannot be made without calling into question one’s own essential goodness. Breaking from your parents is a selfish move, but sometimes selfishness is justified. What I know is this: When I made the decision to stop speaking to my parents, I made the decision to be happy."
