Quote by Holly Marie Combs
When you become a mom you just learn how to function sleep deprived and you do get used to it. I came back to work when Finley was three months old and the first few months were rough. Then somehow you learn to exist on no sleep and now when he does upon occasion sleep through the night, which is like a full six hours, you're pretty sure he's suffocating. So you don't sleep anyway.
This quote describes the experience of being a mom and the challenging adjustment to sleep deprivation. It suggests that despite the difficulties, mothers adapt to functioning without enough sleep. The speaker shares their own personal experience of returning to work when their child was three months old and initially struggling. However, over time, they have learned to exist on little to no sleep. The quote also highlights the contrasting emotions that come with occasional periods of uninterrupted sleep, as the mother worries about their child's well-being instead of taking advantage of the rest.
I'm very happy with my life and I wouldn't take back any mistake I've made because it's made me who I am today. I don't walk around pretending that I'm perfect, so I don't think that anyone else should hold me to that and not expect me to fuck up occasionally. Because I do, and you do, too.
How, then, can the rights of three men exceed the rights of two men? In what possible way can the rights of three men absorb the rights of two men, and make them as if they had never existed. . . . It is not possible to suppose, without absurdity, than a man should have no rights over his own body and mind, and yet have a 1/10,000,000th share in unlimited rights over all other bodies and minds?
