Support  @_aesthesis_ -  How unconditional love can be.
Never did I bother to value your love,
Never did I bother to justify it. 
Yet each time u come up with the same energy. 
To love me more in a different way.

By @inked.blues - • To the girl who was silenced. •
Firstly, i want to let you know that i love you and you don't deserve this. 
You don't deserve to be silenced, and broken inside. You don't deserve to be judged by the strip of your bra. you don't deserve those crooked smiles they shoot you at when you walk alone at night. 
you don't deserve to be treated as an inferior girl child, rather than a human being. You don't deserve to stay numb if someone treats you so unwell, fearing the media and society. 
My dear,
You deserve to be heard, you deserve to be loved, you deserve the fun, you deserve to live the way you want and most importantly,
You do deserve to be treated as a human being ; A flesh of Potential and fierce, wild and calm, all at the same time. 
Im sorry for the times you cried alone, not letting anyone know how much pain you had, I'm sorry for the times you breathed a bit low, for not being given the freedom you deserve. Im sorry for the times you felt suffocated, of not being able to speak out and break the single story of rules, girls like me and you, should obey. Im sorry for the times, your heartbeat raised with fear from the bus when you felt something the stranger shouldn't make you feel. Im sorry for the times you weren't allowed to feel the 2AM wind alone.
Im sorry for the times they stopped your wings from flying high. 
Im sorry for the times they stopped the wheels from taking you to where you want. Im sorry for the times you cursed yourself for being given life as a girl child. 
You deserve better my girl, you deserve better.
For You are as strong as the phenix that comes to life after being burnt into ashes,
You are as fierce as the fire that burns itself to light, 
You are as powerful as the storm that makes the sea high. 
Let your voice be heard, let your wings take you to your destination. -From a girl just like you. - ~Aysha Zebha~

Taabeer or Tabeer is an Urdu word which is kind of unique with no exact translation in Hindi or English. Tabeer means the interpretation or meaning of a dream.

The word especially comes into picture because many cultures and/or people believe that dreams have meanings and hence they try to interpret them, and find their meaning. Hence the need for the word. 
In fact in Indian subcontinent, this is a belief among some that the dreams dreamed during the morning hours turn out to be true. Though that's more of a saying than a belief.

With some souls, you don't always need to converse, why do we get so scared to just share our moments with someone,arm in arm/thigh to thigh/flat feet to flat feet. Are we so scared to actually be intimate? To dream together, to while away the time together. Why this fervent need to force in words? Take a breath, let your thoughts reach out to one another, the words all messy/polished/bumbling let it come at its own pace. - #regrann

By  @audrey.banerjee44 -  The screen of my mobile phone says it 3am,
The sound of his footsteps gets louder as he approaches,
He'll be there any time,
I don't know what fate has kept for me,
Dressed in suite and tie, with a briefcase in his hand,
He enters the house,
The door slowly creeks open,
I feel like a criminal in a jail,
Crime of marrying this so called sophisticated demon,
He calls for me,
Sitting beside me caressing my bruises,
Putting up an important meeting he has come for me,
So I should take pity & obey him,
His finger in no time all over my skin,
He calls me his beautiful wife,
In no time his nails piercing my skin,
I can't bear the pain,
I cry out loud,
With every scream of mine,
He gets angry and hits me harder than before,
Holds me against the wall,
I cry like a baby wishing it to end now,
Smiling at my teary face,
After he satiate his hunger,
He leaves me.
As he leaves there is a filthy smell of blood,
A pungent smell chokes me,
It's been 60 days,
Every night has turned into a nightmare,
Every night I get a new scar,
Every night he tears me apart,
But with every morning I try to put a fake smile,
And show the world a happy wife I am.

In frame  @the_jogan -  There's a difference between love and control. YOUR ABUSIVE PARTNER DOESN’T HAVE A PROBLEM WITH HIS ANGER; HE HAS A PROBLEM WITH YOUR ANGER.
One of the basic human rights he takes away from you is the right to be angry with him. No matter how badly he treats you, he believes that your voice shouldn’t rise and your blood shouldn’t boil. The privilege of rage is reserved for him alone. When your anger does jump out of you—as will happen to any abused woman from time to time—he is likely to try to jam it back down your throat as quickly as he can. Then he uses your anger against you to prove what an irrational person you are. Abuse can make you feel straitjacketed. You may develop physical or emotional reactions to swallowing your anger, such as depression, nightmares, emotional numbing, or eating and sleeping problems, which your partner may use as an excuse to belittle you further or make you feel crazy. Abusive relationships are characterized by control games,violence, jealousy and withholding sex and emotional contact.The more chances you give someone the less respect they'll start to have for you. They'll begin to ignore the standards that you've set because they'll know another chance will always be given. They're not afraid to lose you because they know no matter what you won't walk away. They get comfortable with depending on your forgiveness.
Never let a person get comfortable disrespecting you.
ABUSE IS NOT LOVE.

In talk with  @gaya3s123 
Your weught when u started
106 KILOS

What was it that made u think seriously about losing weight

I was going through a very difficult time in my life. At the age of 27, I was diagnosed with PCOD and I was also going through depression because of losing a close family member and heartbreak. I was feeling like 72 going on 27, and I was just really unhappy with myself and my life. That's when I decided to take control of things and I started working out.

How u started ur journey. Tell us something about the starting months.

During the first 3 months of my journey, I lost absolutely nothing - 0 kilos! I never controlled my diet even though I was consistent with my workout. But then again, I was really not challenging myself with my workout - I never lifted weights, I only did cardio which was just not enough. But I kept persisting, thanks to encouragement from my family and friends. Eventually once I decided to really challenge myself, I started losing weight!

There is always something that hits us so hard that it stays us in our mind and gives us motivation to keep moving toward our goal , what was it in ur case.

The fact that I was not living the life that I wanted really got to me. I was really unhappy and sick all the time. I felt like I didn't do the things that I wanted, wear the clothes I wanted, pursue the activities that I wanted. I would give up big opportunities just because I was fat.

When during the course u realized that it can ne done.

I think I knew I could do it, when I really started lifting heavy and feeling strong. That's when I felt that - if I could leg press 400kg, can't I lose a little weight?

When we are trying hard and not seeing the result, we from inside feel the change happening but its not showing out. How was this phase for you?

It was difficult. And very discouraging. But I never used the scale as a measure of my success. I saw my clothes getting loose, my health getting better, my mind getting lighter and I felt that those things meant more to me than a number on a machine. Plus, the world doesn't see what your weight is, but they see you and the visible changes. What could be better tha
