Abuse

So I went out today after classes and I was walking around campus with a couple of my friends and we came across a couple who were arguing. The guy immediately then slapped his girlfriend D:

Really sad. 

Anyway, my friends started making fun of the situation and made comments like “she should have punched him back ” “he must have caught her jerking some other guy” etc. 

Maybe it makes a difference to point out that these friends of mine were guys.

I’m not saying that all guys are like this, but it is sad to know that the mistreatment of women has become so prevalent that it is starting to become a norm. I am not a hardcore feminist but I do know what it is like to have a boyfriend who could have been nicer to me. It is really painful to love someone who you feel hates you with every bone in their body. 

I wish everyone just treated everyone with love and respect. The world would be a much better place.

The First Paragraph

Every morning I wake up and I wonder what it is about my life that makes the ride worth it. I have not yet lived long enough to consider myself wise, but what I do know is how to love. I can say with full assurance that I have loved another and that experience in itself is why you need to live. We live so we can love. We love so we can go on. Image
