Okay but?? This little girl is me.
Happy Birthday President Obama
later that night
i held an atlas in my lap
ran my fingers across the whole world
where does it hurt?
a massive explosion just rocked the capital city of lebanon, beirut. footage of the explosion has been captured, and it is horrific and terrifying. dozens and maybe even hundreds of people have been injured and the reports have confirmed at least 10 people dead. reports are still coming in.
hospitals are overwhelmed. the lebanese red cross has sent out an urgent message in need of blood donations of all blood types. open transfusion centers to help aid in this disaster are currently
if you have loved ones in lebanon or you are aware of someone who has loved ones in lebanon, i strongly urge you to reach out to them as soon as possible. if you don’t have loved ones in lebanon, i hope you at least spread the word to help others and keep beirut in your thoughts today.
this all started just barely two hours ago, and the reports are still coming in with updates. keep an eye on the news, if you can. stay safe.
this is America.
I made this blog to follow trauma blogs to help me heal from my abusive upbringing but here I am asking for help.
I am a 24 year old female, living with her abusive parents. Backstory: I grew up with a mum who is a narcisst to the T, she has mentally and physically abused me since birth and a dad, who enables her by neglecting me and making excuses for her behaviour. I ran away when I was 20 but as many of you know that if you’re being gaslit for years you start to believe it so I’ve always had an internal battle with begging my parents for love and approval. I have been forced home, I have no job or money to leave. The situation is pretty abusive and this time it’s not just my parents but my siblings too. I need to get out before I kill my self.
I feel really embarrassed doing this as I hate asking for help but can people please help me out financially so I can leave. Thanks
On this day last year 23-year-old Korryn Gaines was killed by Baltimore County police and her 5-year-old son was shot in the limb.
She was wanted for a traffic violation, but apparently a SWAT team thought she was way too dangerous for them to try and arrest her without fatally shooting her.
I still think about Korryn a lot.
