Happy Monday beautiful people!! Last year when I met Mariska she gave put these signed pictures of her. (I promise you its not a phony I even have the videos to prove it!) Once again I know so many fans and people who idolize her are not in the area and cannot go meet her so I would like to send this to someone. I have the memories from that day to last me a lifetime, so I figured I should give someone else something to treasure. Please spread the word if you can and as always have anyone interested DM me directly on instagram. Thank you all so much and God bless :)

#TW Over the last year since I began my training in domestic violence/sexual assault crisis counseling, I have listened to horrifying stories of abuse from people of all ages and from all walks of life. I have tried my hardest to plant seeds of hope for survivors who have seen no sign of kindness or support during their unrelenting struggles. The healers are so important and can be so helpful in times of need, but the real heroes are the survivors. The people who have the courage to face each day, despite the unimaginable horrors they have experienced. THAT is inspiring. To have been abducted, tortured, assaulted, and abused in one way or another is bad enough. But to live in a world that blames you for the crimes commited against you, shames you, and scrutinizes you, is a whole other level of evil. As a crisis counselor, and a person who cares about the well-being of the people around me, it is extremely frustrating and heartbreaking to witness the same  scenarios playing out over and over again. ALL survivors deserve justice and peace to heal. All I ask is for you to educate yourselves, to be supportive, to listen without judgement, and to always be kind.  You never know what demons a person is wrestling with behind closed doors. Keep fighting the good fight people💪 #NoMoreViolence #NoMoreExcuses

So apparently feminism is a hate movement. I’m sorry I don’t remember any feminists going on any shooting sprees because they were rejected by men or sending death and rape threats to blogger who pointed out sexism in video games.

You are made
out of comets
and stars.

Do not surround
yourself with those
that treat you like
dirt and dust.
