"Because for some reason, women are required to be beautiful, but also oblivious to it," says @feministajones. Her #twitter challenge is about a unique way of reacting to unwanted attention. She continues, "'Thanks' and keep walking. I get yelled at. Cursed at. 'That's all you gonna say?'" Sounds way too familiar, right?

Currently I am researching for helpful links at The Borderline Thug Blog.
I have been writing online since 1999 and had my share of many blogs.
I am beyond excited and happy about The Thug. As I share my own story, I am loving spreading awareness about Mental Health and Domestic Violence.
This IS my purpose in life and wouldn't want to be anywhere else.
Having battles with mental health issues myself, I work hard towards healing and in turn share my story.
The Slight Edge by Jeff Olson has helped me towards simple disciplines and baby steps within The Thug and working towards a Vegan Lifestyle.
I hope that The Thug inspires you in some way and helps others to Speak!! Much love, peace and happiness sent your way!!
A lot of people cry out they've been in an abusive relationship once their relationship comes to an end.
In order to stop domestic violence we need to educate ourselves around Abusive relationship and Violent relationships.
Both can be relationships of physical or emotional and mental abuse but the difference being an Abusive relationship is all One sided, however the Violent relationship is where the physical or emotional and mental abuse is perpetrated by both partners in the relationship.
Before damaging reputations, ask yourself...
Are you really innocent? ..
Or have you perpetrated equal abuse to your partner.
KUDOS to @penciledcelebrities for creating this powerful #stopabuse#artcampaign to raise awareness and empower survivors to speak out about sexual, physical and psychological abuse. (THANK YOU @jodinedorce for tagging me about this!) #PenciledCelebrities#StopTheAbuse#EndSexualViolence#StopDomesticViolence#EndRapeCulture#ProtectOurChildren#ArtActivism#ArtIsAWeapon#digitalart#graphicart#RayStylesStudios#RayStyles#EndViolenceAgainstWomen#followpenciledcelebrities ________________________
FROM @penciledcelebrities: Imagine not being able to voice your feelings? Imagine the fear, the terror and the betrayal and how all of this made you feel. As a matter of fact, imagine if it still makes you feel this way. This has been happening for a while. It started when I was younger, maybe the age of 5 or 6. Now that I'm thirteen, things are completely different. I guess without thinking subconsciously I realized something was terribly wrong. He, as my father’s friend looked after me like his own; and would always tell me, "When you are grown, you're going to be special!" I'd smile; not knowing that 'grown' would come soon. Before, I was unaware of his subliminal action but now I've awakened to a dark reality. I WANTED TO TELL my story, yet I was afraid of what would happen to my family, or even me because he'd threaten me. FINALLY I realized that I MUST say something because if I don't I will continue to live in agony. Even if I don't save myself, I want every child to know NOW, not later, NEVER BE AFRAID TO TELL ON A PERPETRATOR! (Tag a friend, caption your opinion and let's discuss) #penciledcelebrities
Je pose là quelques paroles en l'air et j'en profite pour rappeler des choses que vous pourrez oublier :
- On ne vous demande pas d'inviter tout le monde à votre table et crier haut et fort ce qui vous arrive.
- Oui chacun a ses problèmes, et oui vos problèmes sont peut-être moins graves, mais parlez-en. De façon explicite ou subliminale, vous finirez par trouver un ou plusieurs adjuvants de taille et vous sauver.
- Vous n'êtes pas seuls.
- Tout le monde peut changer mais parfois, ça demande trop d'efforts.
- Tout le monde peut changer mais se rendre compte de ses abus n'est pas suffisant.
- Parfois, la seule option est de s'échapper, même si cela semble moins vivable que de rester.
- Le soleil se lève toujours
- Le suicide n'est pas une option. «Le pire dans tout ça, je crois, c’est que je suis encore incapable de développer le moindre ressentiment à ton égard. Je m’en veux, à moi, et à toutes les personnes qui ont, à un moment, donné du crédit à tes actes, à ton attitude et à tes paroles en l’air. Je m’en veux de t’avoir donné le champ de manœuvre pour faire tout ça, et de ne jamais avoir eu la réaction appropriée pour que ça ne recommence plus. Ce n’est pas de ta faute, je le crois sincèrement.» #domesticviolence#abuse#stopabuse#violence#violencesconjugales
Emotions of a physical, sexual, mental and emotional abuse survivor. I've wanted to create this video for months now but the timing was never right until today. This video has no sound or music because when you're in an abusive relationship, you go numb. You are numb to the people around you, your surroundings and to yourself. Nothing sounds right to you and you see things differently. My heart hurt when I made this, I won't lie but it's a piece of my journey and I wanted to share it with you all.
This picture is the deepest I've ever seen ! This picture is why depression hit me and my life turned up side down! Don't ever think you're alone don't ever think you can't speak up!!!! Don't wait until it's to late! Don't be afraid!!!!!!!! Be strong and speak don't be ashamed don't be embarrassed don't be afraid!!! Some one will listen and it will end! #SelfLove#StopRape#StopAbuse#SpeakUP !

BE PART OF THE GENERATION THAT ENDS CAPTIVITY!!! Inform. Educate. Fight! Will you be a voice? 🙏📢👊❤️🌀🐬🐋🐳🐠🐟
I woke up to read something that was a huge trigger and all morning I've been fighting with my heart and my head. This photo got me
To the people who are so hurt they don't even see it.
To the people who abuse other beings.
To the people who leave scars behind, scars that break some of us or make some of us a voice for the broken.
I forgive you because I know you hurt deeply, so deep that you know nothing more.
Forgiveness does not mean acceptance , because it is NOT acceptable and You need to STOP because you are playing victim to your demons and I believe you have the choice to be better.
I know you do. I'm exhausted of hiding in the shadows about this because I am stronger and I am a voice for the broken.
"With only darkness & terror to look at each day, you found a way to live. When my face sagged in sadness and my eyes welled up in sorrow, you told me your dreams of being a woman warrior. And while I withdrew, frightened and unable to face the agony of remembering, you stomped and yelled at the injustice. Just like that day in July, I cannot protect you. But I will always stand with you, because you are my hero. Love, Dad." <3 Read more Survivor Love Letters at www.survivorloveletter.tumblr.com #ProjectEmancipation#PowerofDialogue#survivorloveletter
