Don’t let society tell you that family means anything. It doesn’t. Build your own family full of people who love and support you, you don’t need to accept and tolerate toxic people just because you’re related
In the last week, all Turkish pro-government papers, including mainstream publications likeSabah, A Haber, Yeni Şafak, Akşam and Star, ran similar stories about the PizzaGate, using the very same images and claims from a (now banned) subreddit to convince their readers on how serious and deep-rooted the scandal was.

I used to have no friends. I used to have no lover. I used to have the barest slimmer of hope, something I tucked under my fingernails so I wouldn’t lose it and couldn’t check for, out of fear it would disappear.
I used to be like you.
Now, I have found a new place, a better one. I have more friends than I can count on two hands, I finally found a partner who loves me back, and hope hides under my lowest rib but balloons its way regularly into my smile.
I used to be you, which is how I know you will get through this. Because I already have, and it was worth every heartbreak, every tear, every crack in the surface.
You will get through this, no matter if this is a day, a year, or ten. Just don’t give up.
