Get yourself a strong, independent woman who apparently isn’t allowed to ride on the outside of the crazy mouse at The Steel Pier in Atlantic City @steelpierac because she is of FEMALE GENDER and because apparently women are too weak and fragile to ride on the outside for fear they might get hurt... 😡
Thank you, sir (if I even address you as such) for your sexist comment against me. I was right to speak up about it and I will not let future females suffer under your derogatory comments. I may be small, but I am as strong and if not stronger than some of the other men out there who, according to @steelpierac are strictly the Alphas...

In other words. Please enjoy these pictures. They went a little like this...

Andrew: “Hannah, I bet you can’t pick me up”
Hannah: “Is that a challenge...?”

Today my friends and I were discussing the definition of “a bitch.” What does it actually mean (to each of us) to be a bitch? We decided to save the topic for our next meeting. We’d already discussed what it means to be made small. To have our presence diminished, our voices quieted, our feelings minimized. To me, to be small means that I was made (told, commanded, blamed) to feel as though I were “too sensitive” to be taken seriously. Too “emotional” to have a place. Too “bitchy” to be considered. I wasn’t born to take up as little space as possible. I wasn’t born to “smile all the time” or lead with “peace and love.” To be authentically me, means to stand up for, and develop the space that my footprint occupies. And this takes direct action. This means speaking up. Giving my voice the platform it needs, and providing that home-base, that safe space for my friends as well. If I’m not allowing my voice to carry, how can I (And who is) supporting theirs? We weren’t born to be silent.

Let’s talk about our needs.
We tend to gloss over what we need or judge ourselves as being weak and needy. Or we think that what we need/want isn’t significant enough, or it seems petty. There are so many ways we diminish what we need/want in a relationship.
BUT those things we feel a need/desire for are the very things that can amplify our relationship and create much more closeness.
Conversely, when you gloss over those needs, you actually harm your relationship.
SO what do you want to do about that?

When I saw this I was like...YES!!! I remember hating my job and dreading work. Now I love my job. People in my life that had to be cut out were. And yes I had to set boundaries and a lot of people did not like the idea of me saying NO. But in the end all of these changes helped me become so much happier. So I am just beyond thankful and I am truly happy. #selfcare#setboundaries#kimmcmillen#letgoandletgod#letgo#loveyourself#doyou#speakup

I don't know what is wrong with people. Specifically teens. Why do you want to try to become more dominant over another person. We are all human why try to claim superiority. Why do people judge someone for how they look without talking to them and trying to be accepting? Well they are insecure about their social status. They don't want to be given a bad name. They are adfraid it will hurt their reputation. They need to forget about that because it's only going to matter in school. The real world doesn't care about if your popular or not. they care about if you work and do the job well. You need to wake up and see what's wrong with people. Be a leader not a follower. Lead by example because actions speak louder than words.

Today we attended the NYC pride parade, it was AWESOME!!! SO many cool people. It’s important to always support, respect, accept and LOVE all human beings. #funwithfriends #pride #love #fun #rainbowpower #eatpussyitsorganic #lol #loveallhumans #speakup #puravida #happycouple #couplegoals #justmarried #happymarriage #goodvibes #supportlgbtq #lgbt #lgbtq ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨

You should have total control of your mind and your thoughts. Don’t let people tell you what to think or how to feel - you’ll drive yourself crazy trying to figure out who’s “right”! Make sure you’re feeding your mind with positive inspirations and aspirations. You will do anything you put your mind to, but you won’t do anything you tell yourself you can’t do! Get to it.

Trauma is so very very personal. I used to {and still occasionally do} compare what I've been though with others and by doing so invalidate my pain by saying that mine isn't as bad as so and so's ..or at least I wasn't stabbed and left for dead... or the plethora of variations of that lie I tell myself. It doesn't matter what your story is, your trauma is valid. Always. Don't ever think otherwise. Find a confidant to share with, one that will uplift & support you. You deserve greatness! You deserve wholeness. You deserve healing.
Namaste my friends. 🙏💓

GROW WISER. Learn from your trials. The truth is we are all challenged sometimes. You win some. You lose some. The greater truth is that no single loss ever defines us. Failure is an opportunity to grow and learn. So accept every obstacle with a smile on your face and a belly laugh in your heart. Do not avoid it. Either it will be what you want or it will guide you into what the next step is. Either way, it's all good. Challenge = growth. Avoidance and turning your cheek = stagnet/stuck energy. Remain calm amidst the storm happening outside of you. •

I wanted to share my story for the people that don’t know. These tattoos have multiple meanings being love is on my left arm and strength is on my right. The most common misconception is I’m right handed hence strength and love is on my left hence ring finger but that’s not the full reason to them. Depression and anxiety affect everyone in different ways. I’ve known many people to take their own lives. I have attempted to take mine multiple times. But these tattoos remind me of 2 very important things in my life. You are always stronger than your depression and your will to die and you are loved. It doesn’t matter how many people love you you are loved and those people will always miss you. Being stronger than depression is hard but you can always over come! You always have to keep your head up and keep pushing even when times seem dark cause no matter what there will be better days! I want everyone to be able to talk about their issues no matter how big they are, no matter how much they weigh you down! All it takes to change someone’s attitude on life is show them some sort of attention, show them they mean something to you in your day to day life. Telling someone that you care for them can be the difference between them going home and contemplating suicide and them going home and knowing people want them to be here! Thank you to those that read all of this, I’ve just been seeing allot of people killing themselves and people not knowing they can change their lives! #suicideprevention #suicideawareness #speakup #suicidesurvivor

I really wish I could erase the need for companionship. Mastering the art of being alone is hard sometimes. But I wouldn't have it any other way in today's world. Especially after being abused mentally and physically by a POS for years. Cheated on and lied too. #Mgtow #ArtOfLivingAlone #SoloLife #Recovery #SpeakUp
