THIS IS TRULY THE WILDEST SHIT I HAVE EVER SEEN AND I LOVE IT
OH M Y GODDDDDDD IM NOT EVEN WEIRDED OUT IM IMPRESSED
What the actual fuck?
Finally fully admitted to having bulimia to my fiancé, next step is therapist. I’m so nervous and upset. This is hard stuff.
I do t understand why I’ve gained 6 pounds in one week, all I do is fucking throw up. Don’t you fucking tell me it’s water weight. That’s just fuckin stupid.
Can’t stop throwing up. :(
I grew up pretty poor, my parents struggled but I wasn’t always aware of it. However, we always had the things we needed and so much love and support I had no idea the hardships we had early on.
When I read Harry Potter I had this horrible realization in the 4th grade. Not only had Harry Potter been cruelly treated by family, Harry Potter had never gotten a proper Christmas. I couldn’t wrap my head around a guardian or parent not being able to provide their child with a cheerful day with a small gift or two, yummy food, and wonderful loving family to be around, and the worse fact is that they were able too, but were too selfish to do so. It was absolutely a foreign idea to me that people would treat each other like that.
As I grew up I would learn more and more about people who struggle on such special family oriented days. I know it is materialistic, but most parents love to see their babies smile when they get that really cool Barbie doll or start screaming as they open the wrapping paper to a remote controlled car. I found out growing up how hard it was for my parents to have a Christmas for us, but they saved every penny to make sure we had a special day out of each year where we could play and cover our faces in chocolate, and where they could feel like they could say “yes” to ever want we had that year, as selfish and materialistic as it sounds.
I am constantly crying over the holidays because I wish to God that I could pay for every child that isn’t so blessed as I was to have a special day that year, a huge meal, ridiculous toys, and the love of a family.
So since last year, since we became financially able we have began adopting children for Christmas. This entails finding a family or child through the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree, or even better find an elementary school near you that has kids in need, there are more homeless going to your kids school than you even know. Take these lists and go to the outlets, walmart, biglots, and buy some stuff. We spent under $100 last year for 18 items for three kids. We have 3 kids a Christmas for just $100!
This year we are going bigger. We have done our families Christmas shopping and we are going to pay it forward to other families that aren’t so lucky.
It’s only October, there is no reason that if you can, you should save some money and help out a family in need. Maybe they have a choice between electricity and Christmas, maybe a set of grandparents have been left with their son or daughters kids for whatever reason. You don’t even need a sob story to justify helping put a smile on a kids face who may have a terribly hard life just for one day.
