thank you m’ija. I will.
I am having a bad night, a couple of posts triggered a strong emotional reaction. I know I am very sensitive and I am trying to find courage to turn this into something good.
If you post content with description of torture, abuse, or physical violence please tag it or otherwise put a trigger warning at the top, especially if it involves children.
I worked for a major human rights organization for seven years and it was my job to read, catalogue and be familiar with graphic representations of human rights violations both visual and written. I also interviewed people who suffered these type of violations. It was work that helped a lot of people and I am proud of that work. However, I had to quit because I refused to become indifferent and I burned out.
To date it is hard for me to read or see this type of material. I cannot see horror flicks or other representations of violence to a human body for entertainment. It’s all too real for me.
I think I will get off and do some self-care. Thank you for reading.
I love you all.
