Am I worth saving?

I wish I could choke on the tightness in my throat.

"We live in a country where politicians call rape a “gift from God” and suggest that women regularly lie about being raped. Where a group of young men in high school think so little of sexual assault that they thought it was fine — hilarious, even — to post pictures online of a passed out rape victim, and to live-tweet the rape, joking about the victim being urinated on. We live in a country where media as revered as The New York Times finds it necessary to describe an 11-year-old gang rape victim as “wearing makeup and fashions more appropriate to a woman in her 20s.” Where a woman can be fired because her boss finds her “irresistable” and a woman’s rape case falls flat because she isn’t married. It’s time to acknowledge that the rape epidemic in the United States is not just about the crimes themselves, but our own cultural and political willful ignorance. Rape is as American as apple pie — until we own that, nothing will change"

My ex boyfriend used to always tell me “no one will ever love you as much as I love you” and I used to think it was romantic. Like, “aw he loves me so much that no one else’s can ever compare!” Now I struggle with accepting love and affection and identifying someone’s genuine interest in me because of it. Basically, know that statements like that are very emotionally and mentally abusive and manipulative and be careful not to romanticize it like I did.


college is catered towards the able bodied and able minded. school applauds people who can stay up all night, skip meals, and work endlessly. that kind of extreme contribution is expected. why are disabled people being squeezed out of academic institutions? why should I feel inferior because of some arbitrary and ridiculous standard?
