You own your life

Words for those who write about their lives (both adoptees and others) and are met with disapproval and even hostility for doing so:
“You own everything that happened to you. Tell your stories. If people wanted you to write warmly about them, they should have behaved better.”
And I personally add that any person who take offence on behalf of those people, must be considered one of them.
