I’m pregnant. I’m scared out of my fucking mind. I can’t be pregnant I can’t be.
My boyfriend is going to be here with me without a doubt. In fact, he has already made a ton of sacrifices to be able to support our family and I.
He’s a great guy but I am so not ready for this. WE are not ready for this. I’m not even a hundred percent sure that he’s the guy for me or really I’m the girl for him and now we’re starting a family?!?!
I’m not going to be a good mom. Not at all. I don’t want this.
I’m scared out of my fucking mind I don’t want to go through with this.
can i be your cigarette
so you can pull me out
of a black dark box
so you can light me up
when i’m cold
so you can keep me on
so you can inhale me
even though you know
how toxic i am
but you don’t really care
cause you love that feeling
in your lungs
I’m just sick of being numb.
When I was watching TV this morning I saw an advert from the RSPCA appealing for donations to prevent animal cruelty, and the video clips they played all showed these tiny, shrunken, abused animals; cats and dogs with sad eyes and rib cages jutting out and their bony legs trembling under their small weight because they were so weak and starved. As soon as I saw this I immediately remembered some ‘thinspo’ I’d seen reblogged on my dashboard a few weeks ago, and it suddenly dawned on me just how strange thinspo seems when you really think about it. The top image in undoubtedly cruel, inhumane, and wrong, because the animal has been starved against it’s will, and yet the second image is something thousands and thousands of girls aspire to look like. For many, the second image is beautiful and desirable. But what is the difference really? The same bones are showing, they are both ill and weak. If the girl in the picture was given the dog to take care of, she would undoubtedly feed it up slowly and nurse it back to health, but she could not do the same for herself. It’s so strange how humans are going against the instinct to eat, despite living a privileged life where food is available at all times, they are forcing themselves to become an unnatural and twisted shape. A sick shape. I compare these two pictures, I see their similarities, but I also see the differences in how they are received by people who see them, it confuses me, but most of all it breaks my heart.
I hope this gets more notes.
Absolutely the most powerful thing I’ve read in far too long.
Thank you everyone. I just felt quite strongly about this and I’m glad other people seem to agree with me
This is so incredibly important
Wow. This is sick, and yet so real.
