When I was little I had a cat. She was given to me when I was 1 and she dies when I was 21. She saved me once, pouncing violently on a wandering aggressive german shepherd that had appeared on our back porch. But she saved me in so many other ways as well. I was an only child and had difficulty in telling my parents there was a paedophile targeting me. She never left my side, I would cry into her fur and whisper my secrets to her at night. Theres something so pure about the unconditional love you get from a pet. Its the type of love we all need more of in our lives.

When Matthew needs alone time, he walks his dog up to the higest point in Manukau and watches the planes come in and out. It reminds him of how big the world is, and dreams of travelling. A number of people I interviewed said that going to big open spaces helps them feel better. Feeling small against the universe provides some perspective and releif somehow. Read more from Matthews story of navigating sexual assault within the gay community in the Us project book of stories, available now, link in bio.
The full transcripts from all of the participants in the Us project have been bound together in a beautiful book designed by Heather Grace Mason.
The Us project was formed after I started thinking about how society reacts, supports or damages people who are survivors. The raw and sometimes brutally brave stories in this publication highlight what the world is like or those who have experienced abuse. It is an honest study of issues around the ever-changing mental health status survivors endure. It discusses issues such as self blame, and the presence of abuse's effect on love, relationships and the foundations of family.
The book will be helpful to many in society who wish to understand the mind of a survivor. From experiencers who wish to find validity in how they have reacted to what they have been through, to those who seek to understand their loved ones and offer the right kind of support. The publication gives voice to an experience society doesn't want to acknowledge, and in doing so validates survivors, letting them know their voice is important. It provides a safe space for truth.

"We got counselling and stuff like that, as children. Later they did a review to see what was happening and they kind of informed me that maybe the rape wasn't such an issue for me anymore, it might have been the entire family environment. I thought the whole reason my family was falling apart was because of what happened to me."

I hope this video is played at the start of every #baseball , #hockey , #soccer , #football , and #basketball game, on a high school, collegiate and professional level. I hope this #video is shown (on jumbotron screens in stadiums and arenas EVERYWHERE) before the pledge of allegiance is recited ANYWHERE in America. I hope this video is viewed by EVERYONE and especially ANYONE on my page who is straddling the fence on issues concerning social #justice , #injustice , #racism , #racists , The Black Lives Matter Movement or Take a Knee. I hope that we can look past the obvious #humor /ridiculousness in this video and pay close attention to the partiality, seriousness, and the vast differences in this particular video versus the (countless) former videos, (that we have seen) with similar beginnings yet tragic and all too familiar endings....When I watched this video I just knew (without a shadow of doubt) that once the command was given to get on the ground (multiple times) that this individuals life was over. Not only was the command ignored, the officer was taunted, threatened, chased, battered and the individual was tazed !?!? I just knew that I would hear (bombs bursting in the air) giving proof to the series of "justifiable" gunshots that would follow coming from the officers gun. In this video it's evident to me that the officer is in fear for his life, so what does he do????? He runs, but in times past all we have ever seen is officers with NO REGARD for our life, minorities lives, black lives, ...and what do they do????? Shoot. To kill. And we die. #takeaknee @kaepernick7 #colinkapernick#pledgeofallegiance#blacklivesmatter#stateofanation#america#travonmartin#sandrabland#ericgarner#mikebrown#philandocastile and the #countlessothers we #salute you #fightforyou#loveyou and and we will CONTINUE to #sayyourname STILL ✊🏾🙌🙏❤️💯🤷🏾♀️👌☝🏾. #socialmedia#instagram#snapchat
По данным ЗАГСа самые необычные имена зарегистрированные в России, ну те, которые меня впечатлили, как минимум, это Алиса-Нефертити, Максим-Москва, Князь, и Каспер-Ненаглядный 🙄🤦♀️🤣 ⠀
Вот у балийцев все просто: у них всего 4 имени, которые, собственно, указывают каким по счету родился ребенок в семье.
Родился первым, называют Ваян (Wayan)
Второй, будет Мадэ (Made)
Третий - Ньоман (Nyoman)
А четвертый - Кетут, что означает, "маленький банан" - самый последний и маленький в связке бананов. ⠀
Причем совсем не важно девочка это или мальчик 😳 Поэтому на Бали совсем не редкость свадьба Ваян и Ваян, и родится у них первый Ваян)))⠀
А если будет пятый ребёнок, спросите вы? То все сначала: пятый Ваян, шестой Мадэ и тд. ⠀
Кто все же хочет выделиться, может назвать ребенка некоторыми вариациями, например, первый может быть Putu или Gede. Второй - Кадэ (Kadek), третий - Коман (Komang). А вот четвёртый всегда банан, всегда Кетут)
Моего сына зовут Тимофей, но наши соседи балийцы называют его Ваян, потому что он первый ребенок в семье
А давайте поиграем. Как зовут вас и ваших деток? А как бы вас звали, если бы вы родились на Бали?
Я начну: Дарья, Кирилл и Тимоха и мы все Ваяны))
