This picture sucks, but I honestly have no pictures of this beautiful weekend because we were too busy existing with each other.
.
.
I just have to say that I am ETERNALLY AND INCREDIBLY grateful and damn blessed to have the friends I do. Thank you for being here even through all the detachment and issues I have. I need to say this to your guy's faces, but please know I mean this 1000000000000000% .
.
Honestly, I've never been more comfortable to be myself around others before you guys, and even though I'm still working on being more vulnerable, you all make me such a better person. .
.
Learning that you all understand and accept me for who I am(my age, issues, antics, and everything) is such a rare thing for me and its unrreal actually. This weekend really changed my life because I saw friendship and even something stronger than family like I've never seen before. It just felt right. Maybe I'm being cheesy as fuck, but I wouldn't care if pencils wrote me or clothes wore me around y'all. .
.
Just thank you for being in my life and allowing me to feed you guys my soul 😂😂😂😂😂😂🐷🐼🐶

Recently I've been immersing myself in self discovery: educating myself on my past, the people involved, who I was, and who I am today. .
.
.
Accepting that you are an abuse victim is probably one of the trickiest and most humiliating experiences you can deal with. Being forced to pick up and piece together the pieces after the fact is something I wasn't prepared for, especially when everyone around you was so blind to it all. Finding your voice amongst the fog in your own head is more than a challenge because you're the only person who can.
. 
Everyone thinks that once the oppressor is eliminated, all is well and life continues on. I only wish it was that easy. But instead, we are welcomed with a tsunami of inner demons and glass pieces that are the byproduct of years of emotional neglect. It almost makes it seem like being abused was a much more simple time. .
.
After some time you have yourself believing that you should be okay given the time between recovery and the past, but these thoughts are unrealistic because the gap is minimal compared to the long period of abuse. .
.
The best thing you can do if find help and a support system. Validate yourself and realize that you are not responsible for how you've been hurt. Spending time in discovering all of these things have helped me tremendously. .
.
I owe no one but myself forgiveness for the burdens I carry and issues I have today. And I hope everyone in similar situations will have the courage one day to seek help and find your voice. .

The picture is so irrelevant but it was our #Veganiversary on #170630. On #150630 we made the connection between oppression and our conscious decision to stop supporting it. Being vegan is nothing to celebrate because in a world of such hurt and pain, the least we can do is stop contributing to it. This is simply a reminder to myself that the spread of compassion and fight for liberation doesn't stop. I've learned so many things these past two years and this past year was a big wake up call. 
For the longest time I felt that it was my fault that the world was like this. Somehow I believed it was my fault that others made unethical decisions. To me it meant I had to try 100times harder. It meant to be 100 times harder on myself for not being perfect. If no one was going to give a shit, I had to give 100 more shits. For every complacent person, I felt it was my burden to carry because it was the least I could do, but I eventually burned out. It took a turn for the worse and I thought that the world would be better off without me because I just couldn't bare the weight of it all. But all of this reminded me that I still needed to have compassion for myself as someone who has just recently dealt with an abusive past. I realized that I couldn't help anyone if I couldn't help myself. 
In recent months I've been learning to be nicer to myself because it's recently been discovered that I've never known what it's been like to be nice to myself. My abusive relationship with myself has forced me to reflect upon the scars that still exist from my past. 
I need the same compassion from myself as I give to others. And that's what I've learned in this past year. Thank you to everyone whose been so a part of this growth. #veganism

It's not just about being ethical for the sake of the animals, but for our children too. People think going vegan is pretentious, but what's more pretentious than lying to families about the how much companies care about them when they literally put their pockets over your life and the well being of us all(People, planet, animals) #WhatTheHealth #wthfilm #vegansim #health
