For the women who’ve recently left an emotional abusive relationship.
There is nothing enviable or admirable about an abusive, weak minded man. These type of men live within their delusion, and actually convince themselves that they’re special, needed, missed or wanted.
The truth is, when a toxic man is removed from a woman’s life, like a cloud of darkness leaving after a storm, winter turns into spring, and just like flowers, she reclaims her love for herself and blossoms.
Abusive men never prosper. However, you will.
So, forgive yourself, take accountability for your part in the experience by reflecting on how you failed yourself, what red flags did you ignore? why did you attract that negative energy?, fall back in love with yourself, partake in a higher vibrational lifestyle, hold your head high and strive.
This week’s spread turned out to be accidentally Spring Awakening themed (for the most part), and my trashy musical theatre heart isn’t even complaining. // Self love is more important than perfection.
and now, a series of quotes from my sociology professor this past term...
“pull out your phones and tell me your most recent emoji, lets make this into a social experiment”
“gotta love old dead white dudes who think they know everything about how the world works, right?”
“maybe i’m just really into cocaine, who knows”
“the estate system is like Westeros. anyone in here who doesn’t get that, watch Game of Thrones, I highly reccommend, but I must warn you there’s a lot of boobs. all tits all the time. gratuitous titties.”
“i know what ‘extra’ means to you guys, i’m old but i’m not dead yet”
“so long story short, get into rich people’s social circles so you can go play polo on their yacht and be pretentious about wine to get ahead in life”
“and by ‘we’ i mean white people; in the past czechoslovakians weren’t considered white, although lauren, you are clearly quite aryan”
“I just want to buy a fucking birthday card, why is everything so overly gendered?”
“can i see your penis? wait no, not like that, that was not a proposition”
(in reference to the types of gendered toys found in happy meals) “what are boy toys? aw, fuck, wait, no…”
“i dunno, is ‘cunt’ really a gender neutral word?”
“wow, you guys really know your white people”
“I’m not giving you a fuckin’ word bank, what is this, high school?”
“anyone have any questions? about the test? or anything? please?”
“i’m not gonna grade your tests i’m just going to throw them down the stairs and whoever lands closest to the top gets an A”
“it’s not spelled ‘kahoot’ with a k, what is this, that’s the kardashian way of spelling shit?”
“is this enjoyable to you? watching me fumble around like an idiot?”
“are me and my partner considered a family? we don’t have kids, we have a dog. we’ve been together 13 years but if we didn’t have a dog we wouldn’t be a family by your standards?”
(”i would assume that a 35 year old would know what they want in a relationship more than a 22 year old”) “yeah, you would fucking hope so!”
that while you can make jokes about Feyre manipulating Lucien in ACOWAR by using his mating bond with Elain, that will not make him change. It will make him worse. His condition will get worse as the female he saw as a friend, manipulates him again and again. Just as Tamlin did to him.
The shaman woman of our village told us that these lights are the spirits of our ancestors, and that they had the power to make changes in our world. Small things become big. Winter turns to spring. One thing always changes into another. But the greatest change I ever saw was that of my brother. A boy who desperately wanted to be a man…
