Here is to Your Peaceful Protests.

“They are no better than the bad cops.” “I am all for a protest, but the looting and rioters are ruining it for everyone.” “Peaceful protest ok but not laying in the middle of the highway hindering traffic or emergency personnel , looting, attack people, throwing bricks. That is not acceptable. If you do that... Continue Reading →

what’s my WHY?

I leaned against the shower wall, clenching the razor tight in my hand. My salty tears were quickly washed away by the steaming water running down my face.

Jealous Much? Part 2

“I love you and I am so happy for you. But if I don’t sound that way, I need you to understand, it isn’t about you.

The thick, woven rope was tied tightly around my waste. There was another tied around each of my ankles and wrists. The heaviest rope of all was the one tied securely around my neck.

Remember the Purple.

***Name has been changed for party's protection**** "Please, Kyle let me go. Just stop. I have to go to work," I pleaded. I could barely get the words out of my tired lungs as I sobbed uncontrollably from the passenger seat. The taste of blood and tears filled my mouth. My heart beat was so loud I... Continue Reading →

Your progress and self-improvement will cause unwanted self-evaluation for people witnessing your transformation. The reality check of their complacently may cause them to feel like you think you...
