✨"I was going to die, sooner or later, whether or not I had even spoken myself. My silences had not protected me. Your silences will not protect you.... What are the words you do not yet have? What are the tyrannies you swallow day by day and attempt to make your own, until you will sicken and die of them, still in silence? We have been socialized to respect fear more than our own need for language." I began to ask each time: "What's the worst that could happen to me if I tell this truth?" Unlike women in other countries, our breaking silence is unlikely to have us jailed, "disappeared" or run off the road at night. Our speaking out will irritate some people, get us called bitchy or hypersensitive and disrupt some dinner parties. And then our speaking out will permit other women to speak, until laws are changed and lives are saved and the world is altered forever. Next time, ask: What's the worst that will happen? Then push yourself a little further than you dare. Once you start to speak, people will yell at you. They will interrupt you, put you down and suggest it's personal. And the world won't end. And the speaking will get easier and easier. And you will find you have fallen in love with your own vision, which you may never have realized you had. And you will lose some friends and lovers, and realize you don't miss them. And new ones will find you and cherish you. And you will still flirt and paint your nails, dress up and party, because, as I think Emma Goldman said, "If I can't dance, I don't want to be part of your revolution." And at last you'll know with surpassing certainty that only one thing is more frightening than speaking your truth. And that is not speaking."

Idk what to add to this The thing is, if you insult someone over and over, it isnt poison just to them, its poison to you and whoever sees or heard about it.

Buy this week's LOOK MAGAZINE. I am on page 19 responding to what Sun columnist Katie Hopkin said about using gunships to deal with migrants "Make no mistake,these migrants are like cockroaches." These were her comments after 800+ migrants died in the Mediterranean fleeing Libya. Katie's comments made me so angry because as a migrant I know how it feels to sacrifice all for a better life. If you are a migrant you can relate. What do you think about her comments!! #migrants #are #human #lookmagazine #speakingout #migrantlife

I have severe Crohn's Disease, but that is not who I am or who I am striving to become! Flaring recently, I have faced more frequent symptoms of pain, nausea, fatigue, etc. though those don't stop me from living. If anything these challenges I face push me to appreciate my crazy, beautiful life even more. As I look forward to the days in the near future and planning/ dreaming of the many years to come. Because despite the challenges and fears I face with Crohn's, I have a beautiful life right in front of me that is to amazing to sit on the sidelines for. #FightLikeAGirl #CrohnsAwareness #SpeakingOut #UniqueButBeautiful

Lyrics referenced in the Bruce Jenner interview - perfectly fitting. What a courageous, inspiring, brave human being. Let's hope this brings a public awareness to something that brings turmoil to so many, something that shouldn't be looked at as a "illness" or "disorder". The world needs to stop putting people in boxes, stop judging and start embracing. Because in the end, people's happiness is all that matters. #brucejenner #amazing #truestrength #bringingawarness #changetheworld #oneperson #publicawareness #speakingout #usingcelebrityforgood #breakinggenderstereotypes #breakthebarrier #openthediscussion #abc2020 #powerfulinterview #love #worldhappiness

I cry because of the pain that lingers my heart. I suffer because my mother calls me fat and overweight. She never give me courage. She always push me down. I sob in the darkness now thinking why was I born this way? Was I really suppose to be like this? I hate it so much. I admit I'm bi and I came out this year. I admit I had a close friend she and I act as we were girlfriends. I loved her but that was way before I told my parents I was bi so you know what I did? Being the idiot I was I pushed her away when my heart said no. I miss her and I regret it. If there one chance. Just one more I want to tell her I fell hard at first site. Do me a favorite and don't comment shit like.

I started to tear up when he said "I could've gone home, got my gun, and ended it all...but I wanted to see where my story was going, I want to know how this story ends" Speaking out for gender identity issues #brucejenner has inadvertently spoken out for Suicide Prevention. You are the author of your story, you write the next pages, the next chapter. πŸ’› Thank you Bruce for encouraging others to keep on keeping on to discover how their story pans out! #koko #keeponkeepinon #genderidentity #transgender #speakingout #speakup #talkaboutsuicide #letstalkaboutit #bravebruce #abc #makingsuicidemybitch #suicideprevention #raiseawareness

It feels good to let things off your chest. Just one thing im doing to fix up myself. I need to let the past go and focus on the future. And the first step towards that is forgiveness. I need to forgive everyone who hurt me. And i need to say sorry or have those i have hurt forgive me. I going towards one goal and thats to be someone better. I need to fix myself up and become someone i want to be. Im on a whole recovery progress and im not letting it go. Im gonna stay focused and go through with it. #onestepcloser #eightgoalsandcounting #recoveryinprogress #forgiveness #friends #positivity #focus #speakingout #faith #staytrue #dontbeharshonyourself β³πŸ•”β™»πŸ”ƒ
