very chilling topic on twitter right now. 

i have my own reasons for #WhyIStayed, and looking through this hashtag, i can see so many women and men who were lost, just as i was.

i stayed because it was the first time i felt important to anyone. he “loved” me. when he said he would die if i left him, i thought it passionate. when he started showing up unannounced at my house, because my friends told him my brother’s friends were over, i thought the jealousy was endearing.

then he tried to kill himself when i left town for two days. he was convinced that i would find someone else, in a town where i knew no one. i came back home, and promised i would never leave.

the manipulation and emotional abuse became physical—but only once. he slammed me against a wall after i made a joke about dumping him once i started college. i hid the bruises from my family, for weeks. that was the moment i decided to get out, no matter what happened. for some people, it only takes one time. others need more than one. and some people never make it out alive.

it is not always easy to “just leave.” it is a blessing if you are able to leave, with no consequences.

We got rid of it once before, but it’s growing again. Heavy homophobia + transphobia trigger warning. Please this is important.

I got tired of clothes not being made for me. Clothes that excluded women with big hips & thighs that sashay as they walk. I feel in love with coordinates this summer, so I tried to find some online all declaring “one size fits most.” Well if your hips measure around 40 inches that XXS “free size” isn’t going to fit my arm. So I made my own, and I made them for you. Lets all be cute this summer, get these cute coords here (plus take 15% off with the code AB15OFF)
