Queen Sugar Season 2 Episode 5 Quotes

Charley: I'm not raising Micah the way I was raised.
Therapist: Is there a reason for that?
Charley: It's not that I don't appreciate my parents, I just want Micah to know that he can come to me.
Therapist: Can I ask, did you feel you couldn't talk to your parents when you were growing up?
Charley: Well, my mother brought me up mostly, and I love her, don't get me wrong, but she wanted me to be perfect and we didn't talk about things that fell outside of those lines. But believe me, I know the line between excellence and perfectionism. I'm not forcing that on Micah.
Therapist: And he knows that?

God did not mold you to be no peace keeper. They grown, you grown, and you deserve to live the life you want to live, so we're going to make that happen.
