My Father Told Me I Was Fat

Cherie Burbach - Milwaukee, Wisconsin
As heard on the This I Believe podcast, January 26, 2015

When Cherie Burbach was a young girl, she believed her father's cruel words defined her, and her only escape from his verbal assaults was to write about her emotions. Now, as an adult, she values her words over her father's, and she continues to write to express who she is.
