A daughter’s valentine to her mother’s divorce

Desi daughter writes about how happy she is that her mother got divorced, despite the financial and social penalties attached

My mom was a broken shell of a woman when she was married. Had she “done the right thing” and stayed married, she surely would have lost her mind by now. By standing up for her right to happiness, she opened up a world of possibility that I never knew existed. She showed me that my thoughts and feelings mattered. She showed me that we can’t live for other people. She showed me that we are in control of our lives, and we have the power to make changes. [link]

Also, there’s this parrot who had been previously owned by a fighting couple and which now mimics their fights. The new owners think this is hilarious. [via]
