I shared this image about a year ago and I'm sharing it again now.
It makes people uncomfortable, and those people can keep scrolling.
But as long as it gets you thinking and talking, that's what matters. Those of you who take time to read these words, thank you.
PHYSICAL ABUSE is NOT the only type of abuse. There are so many levels and forms of abuse, and so many people are afraid to talk about it.
Don't be afraid to educate yourself, your families, your friends.
Turning a blind eye to wrongdoings just because it makes you uncomfortable, is almost as bad as the abuse itself.
Like witnessing a fellow student be bullied and doing nothing to help them.
Social media isn't just here for us to post about how fake we are and how much we love make up and fashion and food and going to the gym. It's nice to open up Instagram and see glamour and shiny things and happy stories, but it's also nice to see and spread TRUTH.
No one is perfect and no one is always happy and there is a lot of darkness and pain in the world. If we pretend it isn't happening, it doesn't make it go away.
Sometimes it's nice to be a voice for people who cannot find their own. It's rewarding to know you have touched someone by stepping outside of your comfort zone, by attempting to bring awareness to the topics that are so stigmatized.
Talk about it. I dare you to.
