❝It is easy to blur the truth with a simple linguistic trick: start your story from “Secondly.” Yes, this is what Rabin did. He simply neglected to speak of what happened first. Start your story with “Secondly,” and the world will be turned upside-down. Start your story with “Secondly,” and the arrows of the Red Indians are the original criminals and the guns of the white men are entirely the victims. It is enough to start with “Secondly,” for the anger of the black man against the white to be barbarous. Start with “Secondly,” and Gandhi becomes responsible for the tragedies of the British.❞

pervocracy:

Really can’t stress enough how much being a survivor of abuse is not a job.  It does not come with any obligations.

If you don’t have the energy or ability—or simply don’t want—to become a politically active anti-abuse advocate, to warn everyone in your abuser’s path, to seek justice through the courts or otherwise?  You don’t have to.

You didn’t choose to be abused, so you didn’t take on any moral obligations that a non-survivor doesn’t have.

❝Breathe. It’s okay. You’re going to be okay. Just breathe. Breathe, and remind yourself of all the times in the past you felt this scared. All of the times you felt this anxious and this overwhelmed. All of the times you felt this level of pain. And remind yourself how each time, you made it through. Life has thrown so much at you, and despite how difficult things have been, you’ve survived. Breathe and trust that you can survive this too. Trust that this struggle is part of the process. And trust that as long as you don’t give up and keep pushing forward, no matter how hopeless things seem, you will make it.❞

does your brain ever just produce disturbingly violent thoughts out of nowhere
like terrible, horrible, thoughts
for no reason at all
and then you snap out of it and you’re like 
i don’t want to kill my mom
what the fuck

❝Allow yourself to be a beginner. No one starts off being excellent.❞

Wendy Flynn (via kvtes)

this is my philosophy towards writing. the other day i was thinking to myself: what is my place in this world? who am i? what do i enjoy? and the answer is: i love writing. i am a writer. i could be the shittest writer in the world, but as long as i am a writer, i am being true to myself and true to the art and that is beautiful in itself. no one starts off amazing at anything. i will improve. i will write until everything i have to say is said and then i will go out and live some more and have more to say and life is this big beautiful cycle that i am part of that i am contributing to just by breathing. i am enough.

❝When I was a student at Cambridge I remember an anthropology professor holding up a picture of a bone with 28 incisions carved in it. “This is often considered to be man’s first attempt at a calendar” she explained. She paused as we dutifully wrote this down. ‘My question to you is this – what man needs to mark 28 days? I would suggest to you that this is woman’s first attempt at a calendar.’

It was a moment that changed my life. In that second I stopped to question almost everything I had been taught about the past. How often had I overlooked women’s contributions?❞

sticks and stones may break my bones, but language dictates everything from social norms to legislation and it’s indeed often used to bolster violence and oppression sooOo
