‘It Should Not Take Everything You Have to Turn Down Someone’s Offer for Sex’

its admirable to see someone stand up for themselves. it may take all the physical strenght ang fighting the losing battle but the result is always brave inspiring. i have so much respect for those women. No one should get used to being abused.

Longreads

Twice in my life I have had to fight for my safety. Twice in my life I have physically pushed a man out of my home. Twice in my life I have thrown a man off of me and locked myself in a room where he could not come after me, until he left, until someone else came to help me. It took every ounce of physical and emotional strength that I had. It was exhausting. It was frightening. Had I been the slightest bit more tired, had I been at someone else’s house, had I not had the hope of someone else’s arrival to sustain me, I might have fought and lost. To Ellen and her mother, I might be an example of a “good” near-rape victim.

I should not have had to do it either time. The first time I said No, the first time I turned…

One that got away (my thoughts)

It was never easy to be the one that was left behind. But i think what’s harder is still loving the one that leaves you behind after all these years…

Does it ring a bell? i can’t say that all of us who have loved and been left behind wishes to be with the one thats got away…. But i believe that few of a many have this yearning feeling. How do we deal with this?. Damn if i know, been in this dillema for more than a decade and though i have not seen the face that makes my heart ache i still think of him every. single. day. It’s inevitable as breathing for me, though i’ve wish and pray to lord god that somehow to help me forget. I somehow became desperate to obliterate the feelings and the memory. Since it fuck with my head bigtime. Know what’s sad? It never fades and i give up trying to make it go away.

Over the years i have learned to embrace it. For every dream that i see his face, instead of feeling sorry and yelling how unfair the world is i now give thanks. Gratitude for the opportunity to be united with the one i love even for just a minute. Maybe, i have had that great love of mine ( it is cliche yet it so fuckin true) and he was it for me and i lost him. I’ll always be thankful for that moment that i have with him. Borrowed or not, dream and glimpse of a memory i love it. And i am embracing this compelling-pathetic-one sided-love this is me being
brave. This is my way of freeing myself.

Greatness unleashed

After reading Fifty shades series couple of years ago that totally reunite me back with my love for reading. ive never thought i’ll touch another gem of a novel (crossfire series by sylvia day, rosemarie beach series by abbi glines, falling into you and alpha by jassinda wilder to name a few) its like for the longest time i was asleep and there’s this cult of good author thats hidden underground that has yet to be unleashed. And in my opinion i think that the controversial book by E.L. James all the more boost the sales not only her book but all the great authors in this planet.

To this day the number of book boyfriends that i have continously increasing by the week. ( oh i know, im kinda picky) As my ibook and kindle bookshelf increase its number, my irate phone memory is giving me a crap attitude by hanging. But here’s a peak of my little shelf with all its greatness.

Let’s toast to greatness!
