The most Available!
I started to explore cities and think about the cities that I’ve lived in for a while to come up with a list of cities to find not only available women, but women that are progressing and moving along in life.
The Art of Staying Strong
Layan was beautiful, sensitive, and stubborn at the same time, aspiring to achieve her dreams and goals. However, she always weakened in the face of difficulties and quickly surrendered in small problems. She had three friends, Huda, Wijdan, and Lamia, whom she loved dearly and trusted. Their relationship was full of joy and happiness, and Layan considered herself fortunate to have friends like them, almost like sisters.
IF I WERE KING OF THE GAYS, I WOULD RULE WITH COURAGE
The following is a snippet of a major chapter in my memoir that I have been working on for years. It is my life story(ies), but with a Wizard of Oz twist:
Whispers in the Rain
He raised his head to the dark sky, resisting a small blasphemy that almost slipped from his tongue. He could feel the black clouds crowding like basalt pieces, merging, and then tearing apart. This rain wouldn't end tonight; it meant he wouldn't sleep. Instead, he would remain hunched over, digging a path to divert the muddy water away from the tent pegs. His back was on the verge of getting used to the cold rain's beating, and the chill gave him a delightful numbness.
13 Beliefs I Stopped Holding But Still Haunt Me
All of us know at least a dozen people who do not share all of our beliefs. With over 7 billion of us, there is bound to be conflict. I can agree to disagree on topics like the correct way of hanging toilet paper or whether pineapple is an acceptable pizza topping (it is, btw).
I left my toxic and abusive ex-husband over a year ago at this point and I've done a lot to try to heal and recover from not only that trauma but my childhood trauma as well. I've worked hard over the past three years to look at every aspect of myself and notice not only where I was damaged and broken but where I went wrong too. I've tried very hard to own up to my faults and take responsibility where it was mine to take. That being said I know that everything I did in the toxic relationship with my ex was not perfect because for one it's called reactive abuse. You can only take it for so long before you start giving it back. The next thing is that I am human and I am prone to making mistakes and my decisions and thought patterns were not always the greatest. However, everything I did and/or said or didn't say had a reason and most people only know the tip of the iceberg when it comes to what happened between my ex and myself. Also, that's just it, isn't it? No one except who was in the house truly knows what happened. I have my story which I've told and I have a right to tell and he has his. The abuse that I and my children suffered in that home was real and was not made up by any means. I don't have to explain this to anyone I know but because of poor mental health and comments like this I for some reason feel as if I need to explain. This comment I'm assuming was taken down either by Vocal or the author herself yesterday but I got to read it through my emails. This is from my ex-sister-in-law and this is called victim blaming/shaming. I was already feeling stressed due to the holiday season and the financial burden that it puts on one especially when you have children and then I read this. I just can't help but wonder why. Why as another woman would you intentionally seek out another woman to tear her down? I mean I would never. I feel as women we should always be building each other up because being a woman is hard enough as it is so even if you don't like said woman then just don't say anything but don't intentionally seek her out to try and destroy her. Also, as a Christian, I do not feel I have the right to tell another Christian that they are being hypocritical or "need Jesus." Everyone's journey is different and you calling into question their walk with Jesus is just not right in the least little bit. I'm not saying I'm perfect or was the perfect wife to her brother or the perfect stepmother to her nephews but I did try my best and no, I did not blatantly to their faces call the children mean names such as saying they were fat. Most of the time, the boys called themselves that and I told them not to do that. When you only have one side of the story it's hard to see the whole picture but I suppose it's also hard to see the whole picture when you just don't want to. I know nothing I say will matter and everything I say will just go in one ear and out the other because you've already picked your villain and that's fine but all I want is to be left alone. I'm trying to heal over here, I'm trying to find my peace, I'm trying to not stare at every red truck in town afraid that it might be him ready to run me down, I'm trying to not start shaking violently, and getting sick to my stomach every time his name or any of his family's name comes up because the fear lives just beneath the surface edge so please just go away. If you have any sort of decency about you at all please just leave me alone and I will leave you alone as well. I'm not sharing your name, but things like this? This is part of my domestic violence story and I will share it. You were right about one thing though, I'm not a victim- I'm a survivor.
Yesterday, December 4, 2023, I had surgery. It wasn't the first one but it's the only one I have remembered enough for a good story. While it was a routine one, a tonsillectomy, it was a rough day.

I'M JUST AN AVERAGE PERSON
In the range of north of fifty years, I've seen more than most do in a very long term lifetime. It's a strange acknowledgment — having experienced scenes of viciousness, maltreatment in its many structures, and the disrupting give up on habit. I've seen the grotesqueness of human way of behaving, where equity appeared to be a tricky idea. However, I'm simply a standard individual, attempting to explore life true to form by society. What separates us from others? Maybe deflecting our look, condemning those caught in lamentable circumstances is our propensity.
