I really don’t ask for much…
Only men need to be loved, sweetheart. Women need to be wanted.
Never ending cycle
couldnt be more appropriate right now
Over the weekend I experienced something I never imagined I had to and I figured I’d share it, if for nothing else maybe to help me feel better but possibly make people aware of what you’re sharing oxygen with out there. After work Friday I decided to meet friends and go out to unwind after a long work week. I went to a place I often go to with friends and thats convienently a few blocks away from my apartment. How could anything go wrong? I was in a familiar place, with my friends only a few short blocks from my home all signs would point to a great night. Unfortunately, that wasnt the outcome. For whatever reason my friends and I were seperated and once I realized my gfs were gone it was time to call it a night. I left the bar and began my short walk home. I made it about 2 blocks from the bar and maybe 3 from my apartment and walked right into a classic ‘wrong place at the wrong time’ scenario. I was caught off guard and physically assaulted by another woman who was among a larger mixed group of women and men. This individual had no motive, no idea who I was but took it upon herself to violate and hurt me- thankfully not too seriously. I was able to get out of a terrible situation with the asistance of a more level headed indivudual in her group that could actually acknowledge that I was just walking by and had nothing to do with whatever was going on prior to me walking down their block. Thank God for her. In the scuffle my phone was stolen, my faith in people was broken and my love for my city was lost.
Im thankful that nothing truly serious came of this unfortunate situation I walked away with a few scratches and bruises but even still I cant help but be absolutely disgusted with people. You read things in the paper and watch reports on the news and it never really sinks in until it happens to you or someone you love. So maybe instead of waiting for something terrible to happen we can try to avoid it by being better people in general. Be kind to one another. Respect one another. Accept differences and coexist. Noone should ever feel unsafe or violated. As cliche as it sounds situations like this really put things into perspective. Just a little food for thought when you’re interacting with other human beings, respect and tolerance go a long way and when all else fails karma is a bitch.
