 Photos: Monument Valley Organizes Silent Protest Against Redskins
 In Monument Valley, Utah, the Internet is not a ubiquitous tool for most members of the Navajo Nation. So, many stories on the Web or comments on social media about the Washington football team’s name-change debate were not heard.

“Normal is getting dressed in clothes that you buy for work and driving through traffic in a car that you are still paying for - in order to get to the job you need to pay for the clothes and the car, and the house you leave vacant all day so you can afford to live in it.”

very chilling topic on twitter right now. 

i have my own reasons for #WhyIStayed, and looking through this hashtag, i can see so many women and men who were lost, just as i was.

i stayed because it was the first time i felt important to anyone. he “loved” me. when he said he would die if i left him, i thought it passionate. when he started showing up unannounced at my house, because my friends told him my brother’s friends were over, i thought the jealousy was endearing.

then he tried to kill himself when i left town for two days. he was convinced that i would find someone else, in a town where i knew no one. i came back home, and promised i would never leave.

the manipulation and emotional abuse became physical—but only once. he slammed me against a wall after i made a joke about dumping him once i started college. i hid the bruises from my family, for weeks. that was the moment i decided to get out, no matter what happened. for some people, it only takes one time. others need more than one. and some people never make it out alive.

it is not always easy to “just leave.” it is a blessing if you are able to leave, with no consequences.

i will not be shamed or made to feel like a bad person for needing to do what’s best for my mental health
i will not be shamed for asking that my basic needs be met or allow anyone to belittle me and act like it’s the most ridiculous request
i’ve learned that always approaching things with a calm reasonable demeanor when i just get combative and aggressive responses is so fucking detrimental to my health and i’m not going to feel like a terrible person because i want to protect myself and feel comfortable in my own personal space
my comfort and happiness is no longer a negotiation do what you need to in order to survive and get on but do not fuck anyone over in the process. and if you do, take accountability. just because you love someone more than yourself does not mean you should do anything/everything to make it work. the first and most crucial mistake was loving yourself second.
