Someone tried to strangle me, and I survived. I don’t need to hide that.

I have a personal ambition to live my life honestly and honor the true love that I’ve had and also the people I’ve had around me. I want to stay hopeful, even though I get scared about why we’re even alive at all.

He  leaned  forward  and  wiped  the  tears  from  my  cheeks  with  the  sleeve  of  his  own  kefta.  "If you tell me you cannot bear this then I will send you from here and you need never wear those colors or walk the halls of the grand palace again. You will be safe. I promise you that."

I looked up at him, not quite believing. “Safe?”

"Safe. But I can promise this too. You are a soldier. You could be my greatest soldier. And if you stay, if you can endure this, one day all will know it.”

His  face  grew  serious.  “I  can  promise  you  safety,”  he  said.  “Or  I  can  promise  to  see  your  suffering  repaid  a  thousandfold.”  With  the  pad  of  his  thumb,  he  brushed  a  stray  tear  from  beneath  my  eye.  “You  decide,  Genya.”
That choice was hard, but this one is easy. I open the black wood box, and I feed the letters to the fire, one by one. It hurts but I can bear it. Because I am a doll and a servant. Because I am a pretty thing and a soldier all the same. - (Leigh Bardugo, The Tailor)

"I am in here because I am no different from anybody else in here. I made bad choices. I committed a crime. And being in here is no one’s fault but my own."
