“I don’t have sob stories like all of you. I could sit here and complain how our mom liked Zuko more than me. But I don’t really care. My own mother… thought I was a monster… She was right of course, but it still hurt.”
“What do you want from me? You want a teary confession about how hard my childhood was? Well it wasn’t. I was a rich only child and got anything I wanted… as long as I behaved… and sat still… and didn’t speak unless spoken to. My mother said I had to keep out of trouble. We had my dad’s political career to think about.”
"Do you have any idea what my home life was like? Growing up with six sisters who looked exactly like me. It was like I didn’t even have my own name. I joined the circus because I was scared of spending the rest of my life as part of a matched set. At least I’m different now. Circus freak is a compliment.”
I relate to May the most….
