A personal project I created many years ago.... a project I 100% am the creator of and own the rights too.. something deeply close to my heart that I have been wanting to release for so long, but my (high res) images were stolen by this specific photographer... Unfortunately in this world there are people who take advantage of others, there are people who prey on kindness, on vulnerability and in my case it was an opportunistic photographer who preyed on the fact that I had a ‘name’ and the fact that I am naked in these images. I wish I had the foresight when I was younger to make sure this never had happened. Trusting people to honor their word was how I was educated and raised, believing in being protected and respected, especially if your shooting nude images and are at your most vulnerable, is something I would hope photographers would have the decency to uphold.... So I will release them here, and let them go, and hope that one day this kind of malicious act towards women, especially vulnerable women, stops. #elephant#power#love#tanitphoenix#vegan#kindness#metoo#stopabuse hey @francoispistorius I am talking about you!
GOOD NEWS FIRST! KD has been rescued! You may or may not remember this horrific video of someone abandoning a dog. @kdishome now has a loving family. It was very important in sharing their story to remind people that if you ever get to the point of feeling like you can’t care for an animal, there are places or people to bring them to. And make sure you’re ready for a pet before adopting. Animal abuse is never okay. #StopAbuse

Repost from @mental_health_is_not_a_taboo
I learned this when I started sharing my abuse stories on my blog. Oh it hurts, but once the poison of that memory has been let out that wound will start to heal and dry up.
I burn for so much. I feel so much & so very deeply. I went on a walk today & I saw the most beautiful roses blooming in winter.... everything dead all around. And I could not help but cry. I felt hurt, but awe struck by beauty, sadness, but overwhelming calm and peace. I just wanted to stay with them for a little while and learn their secrets to blossoming in adversity. #notcrazy#flowerchild#naturelover#empath
Bullying is NOT ok. I too was bullied when I was in middle school and high school, I developed earlier than the other girls, I was a curvy size 10/12, and my breasts were a D cup by the age of 12.... and just because of this I was seen as different, I was picked on, i had to wear baggy shirts otherwise they wouldn't fit over my breasts, and obviously it hangs off you're boobs and this made my belly look bigger than it was. I was called a "whale" on a daily basis, and that hurt, so much. And i still struggle with my confidence to this day because of it. I wasn't even overweight back then! Now I am a size 20/22 and I AM overweight... but I wish I could have gone back in time and told the younger me that bullies only pick on people because they're ashamed of themselves, protecting their own fears and insecurities onto 'easy targets' to make themselves feel better.
I now have over 25,000 followers on Instagram and my body is constantly complimented, I wish back then that I knew that body shape, and size means nothing, a pretty face and perfect body is nothing if you have an evil heart.
I'm not perfect, I AM overweight, and this is due to my disability, but do you know what.... that's ok! The right people will love me for who I am regardless of my 'flaws'. The only ugly people in this world are the ones with ugly hearts!
There is true beauty within all good people no matter what you look like. Confidence and kindness will attract the right people. And the assholes you meet along the way will only make you stronger.
No one deserves to feel like they are less than anyone! It's NOT 'cool' to bully. It's MUCH cooler to be the person who stands up and says, "No! Stop it." To be a true friend to those good people, don't stand behind a bully... stand in front of a victim and be their strength and they will eventually find their own. 🖤
If you are being bullied, tell someone, a friend, family, teachers, anyone. You don't have to do this alone I promise you.
I can definitely attest to this statement... The best views DO come after the hardest climbs... ___
A lot of people go through traumatic things while they’re young, myself & family members included, & this can leave an indelible mark on them as adults that can affect their entire life as well as those around them... ___
But if you can rise above those struggles & allow yourself to learn lessons from them & allow them to make you a stronger, kinder person, then you can benefit the world around you through all of it.
Because of my own experiences, I feel a strong calling to counsel & guide others with things they may be going through or have gone through. Having worked a lot on the healing process, I’d like to be of service to others in this way...
Rage, grief, disappointment, rejection, abuse & abandonment leave lasting scars....
To me, it’s the ultimate embodiment of bravery to face these issues within ourselves & heal them. If we can be brave & honest with ourselves about what we need to heal, we can release issues that are caused by the past...
In releasing those issues, we protect our children, friends, family & ourselves from having the past affect our present & our future.
It only takes one person making that effort to heal... If nobody’s willing to do the work in that respect, that’s when families experience reoccurring cycles of abuse.
One person has to be the first to put their “foot down” in creating a brighter future for their life. When one person makes that decision, it ultimately affects everyone they come into contact with & initiates cycles of healing instead of abuse... ___
Are you that one person?
Don’t wish for a different past.
Use the experiences from the past as lessons for a better future. 💗☀️ You can do it.
In light of many abuse cases that are in the headlines these days, domestic and or sexual, I felt the need to share my story. Yes, I am a victim of domestic abuse as many women and men are having the courage to come forward and admit. A couple years ago I wrote this article, sharing my story in hopes to find closure and help others to come forward and find their own closure. I will have the link to article in my bio for the next few days, and if you need someone to talk to I am here...💛 #metoo

#IsItOkayForGuys ... to be the little spoon? One of the most searched #IsItOkay questions on google! Why not? What do you think?
#IsItOkayForGuys ...to cry?
The stigma surrounding mental health can be even more challenging for men when facing restrictive gender stereotypes. #ItsOkay . Charities such as CALM encourage more men who are struggling to open up and talk about it.
If you're struggling with mental health issues (whatever your gender!) you can call the Samaritans at 116123 (UK).
#IsItOkayForGuys ...to be skinny?
Google's autocorrect function reveals the questions that men are searching for online. Gender roles can be damaging for men too: 57% of UK men are told that 'real men' should act a certain way and more than half have had thoughts of suicide.
Body image is an issue for men and women - whilst it's important to maintain a healthy weight, it definitely is okay for guys to be skinny. 👦🏼👨🏽👱🏻👳🏽♀️👦🏿
Do you have a favorite place to just be? Or a place where your soul and heart just feel at home?
I was really depressed yesterday. It was just a sinking feeling that would not go away. So I went and sat underneath my favorite oak tree, I call her "Mama Oak". She always brings me comfort. I sit underneath her great limbs alot. Last night I just hugged her and told her all of my fears and sadness, and it helped them to go away. I hug this tree everytime I see her and she brings me so much comfort. .
Feeling pretty angry and confused right now. Wondering when these waves will stop coming. I’m determined to free myself from this anger I just don’t know how. #supportsurvivors
La primera vez que lo escuché fue en un evento de talento femenino en el sector TIC al que acudí en BCN el pasado noviembre. Así como existe el movimiento #movember , #dressember es una iniciativa mundial que pretende eliminar y erradicar toda clase de abusos que 35 mill de mujeres y niñas aún sufren en todo el mundo. Exclavitud, violaciones, explotación sexual.. hablamos de abuso y opresión en el sentido amplio. En el tercer mundo, aquí al lado y aquí mismo. Gracias @inmaferragud por compartir esta iniciativa y ser una gran impulsora de este movimiento. El granito de arena es simplemente un post con el hashtag #dressember . Challenge de 31 días, con toda la info disponible en la pag. dressember.org a través de la cual se podrán hacer donaciones durante todo el mes. Just be the change you want to see in the world 🌸
Title: The End (2016) #2
Description: Animal cruelty and animal abuse is a massive issue in this day and age especially in the meat and diary industry. This series points out how we abuse and manipulate animals by "mass producing" them so that we can slaughter them in the end for their flesh, milk and skin.

To all our lovely supporters and followers:
Paws kuwait is currently home to more than 450 animals (not including our babies being treated in the hospitals). We are proud to say that we have never left an injured animal behind and our small team has extended all their efforts towards this cause. PAWS is now in a situation of crisis. The donations are not coming in like they used to and the rescues have increased dramatically. In the past couple of months paws has survived because our members have been covering the expenses out of pocket along with the donations we have received. It just isnt enough. We really need your help to get out of this financial crisis. Our total monthly expenses are as follows:
Shelter rent: 600 kd
Electricity/water: 200 kd
Food for animals: 800 kd
Salaries for shelter workers: 1000 kd
Spaying/neutering: 350 kd
Vaccinations: 1200 kd(for all animals)
+ medical expenses from vets and re-homing expenses for our adopted babies to go to their forever homes.
As of now PAWS kuwait is officially STOPPING rescues for any New cases. We cannot continue to rescue without the funds to cover our expenses. We will continue to post the cases and we encourage everyone to help out and rescue when they can. We will always be here to guide and assist you.
We will resume rescues as soon as we are financially stable. If everyone of our supporters donated just 1 kd = $ 3.2
a month we wouldnt face these issues. Please help🙏💖

I was just watching the news here in NZ and they stated that 1 child is killed here every 5 weeks by abusive parents 😭 -
I just don’t understand how ANY parent can abuse their child but to abuse them until they’re dead?! Hearing that just breaks my heart and cuddle my daughter even tighter and say I love you 100 times more.
Abuse doesn’t even come across my mind even when I’m having the most stressed out day or Isabelle is being a right little monkey, even when I just want a break.. I just take a breath give her a BIG cuddle and say let’s go play with your babies (her favourite thing to do)
I can’t imagine what life could be like for some children but I sure know I want my child/ren to have the best life , the best childhood they can remember so they can tell their grandchildren a story beginning with “back in my day” I want to hear them say those words “Thankyou for raising me with a big heart I Love you!!” 💕
It’s so upsetting that some people can be so heartless it just grinds my gears! Please if you can’t cope ask for help or just walk away for the situation you’re in.
Im so thankful and so forever grateful I was raised with love and was cared for. I love my parents so much and because of them I will raise my child/ren the way they raised me “with LOVE” but in mine and her fathers own special way 💕💕 -

Been wanting to make this post, everytime I do its cause Im angry at the events that have unfolded. So I took some time to think about how to word this with out being in the heat of the moment.
Some individuals are all about their apperance to others and how they are seen. But behind close doors its a 180°, their true colors are let out and the real person they really are. You are a Narcissist, paint a picture of yourself as being a victim or innocent in all aspects. You are offended by the TRUTH! You have an inflated sense of your own importance, a strong sense of entitlement (which you have none of), and a very deep need for admiration from others! You use verbal abuse for power and control. Just remember, whats done in the dark ALWAYS comes to light. When youre exposed will you be able own that of who you really are...be patient the light is slowly shining through. #foodforthought#quote#thoughts#narcissist#verbalabuse#exposed#88#truecolors#entitlement#privledged#beta#whatgoesaroundcomesaround#stopabuse#truth

Do not even eat with such people." -Corinthians 5:11
I am the Word that spoke and light was made; I am the seed that died to be re-born; I am the bread that comes from heaven above;I am the vine that fills your cup with joy. Take and eat; take and eat: this is my body given up for you. Take and drink; take and drink: this is my blood given up for you I am the way that leads the exile home; I am the truth that sets the captive free; I am the life that raises up the dead; I am your peace, true peace my gift to you. Take and eat; take and eat: this is my body given up for you. Take and drink; take and drink: this is my blood given up for you I am the Lamb that takes away your sin; I am the gate that guards you night and day; You are my flock; you know the shepherd's voice; You are my own; your ransom is my blood.

eating enemies since 2003, if self portrayed assumption to be enemy of he who claims to be A.O.K past the year of 2013, dead wrong. we appreciate being witnesses to those that have been hating since 2003 ...for the enemies I fed and want to see my severed head served on a silver platter with a side of fruit; The Fruit of my Labor, and a great tasting Red Wine that was once a half glass of water to add flavor to the bitterness.

We are to live in peace. Peace in our hearts, soul, mind and relationships. If there is not peace, create peace. If you cannot create peace than walk away. This phrase is not just for Christmas but should be a mantra we adopt in our real lives. There should be a mutual respect and love in a relationship that exudes goodwill towards each other. Peace and love is the foundation for all great relationships. Check your foundation.
First of all @judgemooreforsenate you yank a horses mouth like that in front of me I’m liable to yank you right outta the saddle and school your sorry ass on soft hands 🤬 Second, I sincerely hope there is a pad under that saddle to avoid sores. Thirdly, you did a piss poor job of cleaning up your mount before this spectacle with that shaggy coat, raggedy mane and dirty hocks. Politics aside, show some goddamned respect to a horse for carrying your wrinkled pasty ass around 😠✋🏼🐴 #horse#horsesofinstagram#politics#fuckyou#savethehorse#sweetjesus#horsegirl#stopabuse#softhands#motherfucker
