gives you power

I’ve gotten the same anon 11 times and all it says is “Go kill yourself.” Between last night and now that equals 15. I had to turn my notifications off. I. don’t want to know who or why because this gives you power. I just want you to know that I am in a good place mentally that I value life and that won’t happen. And for when you explained I don’t belong here, yeah probably not. I don’t belong in a lot of places and I do in others. But if this is going to be a pattern I am will have to either not come back or find an alternative. You are lucky in the timing you chose to do this as my personal life has dipped, something that is not public business or to be used for pity. But I am seriously done with people belittling my life and worth.

It’s not just Trump that gained power tonight.

It’s the man on the bus touching me, thinking he had a right to my body.

It’s the man who called me a fat cow for telling him to watch where he was going because he almost ran me over.

It’s the saleswoman yelling “WHY DONT YOU SPEAK MY LANGUAGE” to a Muslim man.

It’s my mom telling my sister being gay is a phase.

It’s my classmates saying women wearing revealing clothes are “asking for it”.

When you give one bigot power, you give all of them power.

Okay so you know that trope in fics where after Harry comes out, Ron asks him if he ever looked at him that way? Usually his response is relief but like, what if it wasn’t? What if it went like…

Ron: What do you mean you’ve never?
Harry: Well, you’re like my brother. It would be too weird.
Ron: Not even once?
Harry: Nope.
Ron: But you’ve thought about Malfoy?
Harry: Um, recently, yeah.
Ron: I’m gonna need a 20 inch essay on what Malfoy has that i don’t.
Harry: It’s not like that! Hermione, help me out here.
Ron: Is it the hair?
Hermione: I doubt that’s it, he used to like Ginny. Maybe it’s more about posture.
Harry: *hitting his head to the desk and groaning*
Ron: I’m taller than he is Harry and he’s a bit skinny to be honest. I have more bulk, you know? Wait, where are you going? I’m a bloody catch, come back!
Hermione, snickering: There there, Ronald. I know you are.

BE OPTIMISTIC

Thanks for the inspiration @healingsuggestions :)

Spell to get over someone/move on

As we move in to another season, we may feel the need to let go of some things in life to welcome the new. Do this simple spell if you need a little support to move a step away from situations or people who are toxic to you. 

You will need:

1 Black candle ( banish negativity, healing and support through loss and grief, ridding of bad habits )
Peppermint/eucalyptus essential oil to anoint candle
1 Bay leaf

Anoint the candle and light it. Write what you want to achieve on the bay leaf (paper works fine as well). Burn it and visualize all your negativity and pain vanish and fade away. Release your wish to the universe, into the wind or the water whichever you feel more connected to. As you snuff out the candle/let it continue to burn out, let it absorb all you hurt and let the fire’s energy heal you. Focus on your intent of allowing the fire to give you the strength and power you need. Release what does not serve you and open your mind and soul to opportunities that await. After you have released the ashes and the candle light is out, you may dip your hands in a bowl of water to symbolize a clean start. 

if you think that makeup gives you power over men consider whether that power would still exist without men’s contempt for the “ugly” “lazy” “unfeminine” women who don’t wear it
