    Letter To Myself

    Letter To Myself

    Knowing the future is a dangerous thing, it can manipulate your decisions and leave you living in fear. So, you should know that I would not be telling you all the things that I’m about to if I didn’t think that it was 100% necessary.

    God brought me a Budweiser?

    I have always believed that words are powerful. That we speak our lives into the existence we live. So, you must be careful what you say.

    Esila 21 March 2017 Feminism: Powered by Appeal Feminism has come a long way over the years. There are still many stones to turn for equality of the sexes. Feminism, for many men and women, has lost its attraction. Though Feminists have achieved a great deal, they have lost their appeal, but gained power by negative appeal, obstacles women still face, and the new election of Donald Trump in 2016.

    Esila 22 September 2016 Feminism in Film What makes a movie feministic? There is much debate about this topic among critics, but some of the criteria is a bit biased. For example, many critics say that Jane Got a Gun is a movie which could have been made feministic, but there is more evidence than not that this movie really is feministic (Jane Got a Gun).

    Being a nasty woman

    Being a nasty woman

    When I was a little girl, I was told I could be anything. This may have been communicated literally or culturally, through books, media, television, commercials, and glossy ads of little girls dressed up as superheros. After all, legal barriers for women were mostly reformed, technically speaking, and sexual harassment was of course illegal. Technically. So yes, I could be whatever I want when I grow up. An astronaut at NASA! Even President!

    Flashbacks

    Okay, so just like many girls have been through stuff so have I. I’d like to say more than people imagine, us girls been through a lot. If you just sit there and tell yourself I wonder if she’s been through certain stuff more likely she has. People who know me don’t know this,but I have been through some in thing that changed me. This is the first time I talk to it in public. Yes, I know I’m beautiful, smart, worthy, caring, and out of all I’m Me; but there’s some people that didn’t understand that they shouldn’t take advantage of us. Like I said in many of my stories before my mom worked a lot and for that reason she would leave us with her friends to take care of us. Until, one day she said we staying with one of her coworkers wife. They had a beautiful home and they were nice. I don’t know what they were to her, but they also took care of the owners kids with us. The lady would treat us like her own. Girls I know sometimes it’s hard to trust people and after I’ve been through this I know also. This ladies husband would call my sister and I to come and sit on his lap while watching T.V.,but little by little as day goes by he would intentionally touch us in the wrong places. He would stick his tongue in my sisters ear and mine and bite it to. He would rub us all over and at the time I don’t think I knew what was going on. I’ve been sexually harassed and even though I didn’t get it worse as many of you guys I still was tormented for life. My trust in older people and my love for Mexicans went away. That guy was Mexican which was why I couldn’t stand my people at all. People who haven’t been through this will say stuff like; Why would that have anything to change you about?”,or stuff like can’t you just forget about it?”. In reality, No we can’t because once a woman been through certain stuff they start building their wall. Some women who are hard to get or hard to open are those victims. I know I don’t like talking about my problems because I never told my mom what happens until the other day recently we talked about it. It’s been about 10 years I want to say. Reason for my relationships with guys have not been the best. I always think to myself am I good enough for him, am I worthy, is he going to judge me, or stuff like will he love me still. I’m here to tell women don’t be scared to open up please we need more strong women out there to help one another. Women should be proud of who they are because we are all beautiful and strong. Girls who been through stuff and you have a boyfriend don’t be scared to open up and be you. I promise you they’ll accept you and appreciate you more. I learned the hard way but that’ll be in a different story. Also ladies listen make sure you speak to people you trust with these things. Honor and make sure you love yourselves FIRST. That’s my story and I know many girls been through stuff like that. I promise your future will get better it’s time to get up babygirl and rise to your future.

    Flo Vitamins: Gummies that help with PMS

    Its pretty likely you have seen those pink round gummies on your Instagram feed before; the ones that claim to help with various symptoms and pains that come right around that time of the month. Reviews from customers claim that the vitamins, filled with chaste berry, have helped clear their hormonal acne, curb cramps and overall make the time they are on their period a much better experience than what is traditionally known.

    WAP brings THE WRONG IDEA OF WOMEN EMPOWERMENT

    WAP brings THE WRONG IDEA OF WOMEN EMPOWERMENT

    There has been so many people talking about it, some say it is bad and others, that its good. BUT is it good? If it is good, then for me I mean it is the beats and the music that I like. The lyrics of the song is so degrading that I do not even have words for it. When Critics are saying that this song is vulgar or bring bad role models, some people starts to defend it. There is nothing wrong to tell your opinion but defending something that is just only sexual, is where we are wrong.
