i have my own reasons for #WhyIStayed, and looking through this hashtag, i can see so many women and men who were lost, just as i was.
i stayed because it was the first time i felt important to anyone. he “loved” me. when he said he would die if i left him, i thought it passionate. when he started showing up unannounced at my house, because my friends told him my brother’s friends were over, i thought the jealousy was endearing.
then he tried to kill himself when i left town for two days. he was convinced that i would find someone else, in a town where i knew no one. i came back home, and promised i would never leave.
the manipulation and emotional abuse became physical—but only once. he slammed me against a wall after i made a joke about dumping him once i started college. i hid the bruises from my family, for weeks. that was the moment i decided to get out, no matter what happened. for some people, it only takes one time. others need more than one. and some people never make it out alive.
it is not always easy to “just leave.” it is a blessing if you are able to leave, with no consequences.
I’ve been thinking a lot about stuff like this. Like I want to forget those 2 years, but something reminds me of an event and mentally making a note of forgetting said event keeps the memory fresh in my mind. Like, “Hey forget about the time when he ________.” It’s a vicious cycle. If I didn’t get triggered everywhere in life I could forget everything.
This x-ray shows the case of an unfortunate woman who happened to have a snake crawl into her vagina, slither through the fallopian tube, and out oast the ovary into her body cavity. It survived unknown for three days until the snake started eating her appendix.
On HELL NO.
How do you not realize a snake is crawling into your vagina? She has to be loose as hell or she did it on purpose. The fuck.
WHAT DO YOU DO ABOUT THIS??? WHAT KIND OF PROCEDURE NEEDS TO BE DONE?!?!?
This honestly made me tear up. Imagining how great he must have felt that his planned worked and choosing that risk paid off. I also feel like him and the model have such good chemistry, they’re always so kind and loving to one another.
Holy shit what did he do?? That’s rad as hell!
Since the runway was going to have simulated rain, he wanted to make the outfit become colorful because of it rather than deflect it. He sewed dye into the seams and once the rain hit it the dye ran! Very simple but super effective. He was one of the two winners of that challenge.
