I don't take pictures of myself, so sorry about that......
How do you pick up the threads of an old life? How do you go on, when in your heart, you begin to understand, there is no going back? There are some things that time cannot mend.
why do guys place their hand right below your belly button while fucking? (like when you’re on your back and he’s kneeling in front of you, holding your thighs or something) and he just presses down on your pelvic bone?
Because there is a pressure point there somewhere…
Life is too short for shitty sex and bad relationships.
So go find someone who fucks you right and treats you how you deserve to be treated.
Time flows in a strange way on Sundays.
There’s a Battle Brewing to Stop the Construction of a Huge KKK Monument in Selma
Activists in Selma, Alabama have been fighting for more than a year to stop the construction of a new 12-foot monument dedicated to Nathan Bedford Forrest, a lieutenant general in the Confederate Army during the Civil War and the first Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan. Recently, attorney Faya Rose Toure spent the Thanksgiving holiday in jail after being arrested for protesting at a Selma City Council meeting.
Tarana Burke, one of the activists who’s been protesting the statue’s construction, told Colorlines why the fight matters:
“I feel like allowing this monument to be erected is disrespectful to people who fought and died for our civil liberties,” she said. “What kind of message does it send to our children? We can’t just being complicit in our own oppression; it’s disgusting.”
Toure was reportedly offered bail but refused in protest of the statue’s construction.
Burke has started a Change.org petition calling the construction “unacceptable.”
When life is sweet, say thank you and celebrate. And when life is bitter, say thank you and grow.
Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics.
That time you confused a lesson for a soulmate.
Most of us ask for advice when we know the answer but we want a different one.
People believe that little white kids in the suburbs have the right to live. They have the right to be happy. They have the right to peace. When it comes to black babies in urban neighborhoods, people don’t believe these children deserve to have similar rights. When people say things like ‘I can’t believe this would happen here,’ they are effectively saying that there are some neighborhoods where these tragic outcomes are far more acceptable. I reject this notion entirely, and it is reflective of both white supremacy and classism.
