Ador să-mi personalizez hainele, sa le dau o semnătură. Această bluză era complet albă, asta până ce m-am gândit că o pată mare de culoare nu ar strica deloc. Așa s-a născut bulinoiul cu triunghiuri...dar mai multe pe blog deseara cu un look book primăvăratic.
Pentru ca “in trecut asa ceva nu se facea”. Ba da, se facea (si inca si inainte sa existe camera foto, daca iti vine sa crezi). Asa cum multa lume nu neaparat cunoaste pe cineva gay, la fel nu erau asa cunoscuti atunci - dar asta nu inseamna ca nu existau. Societatea opritoare face oamenii nevoiti sa isi traiasca dragostea naturala pe ascuns. Spun naturala deoarece argumentul meu preferat (in sensul de ‘rad de fiecare data cand il aud) contra gay e “nu e natural”, ceea ce e amuzant ca defapt multe specii de animale pot fi gay, dar asa e cand vrei neaparat sa fi contra si defapt habar nu ai. (Bine, apoi incep cu “si daca animalu face tra sa faci si tu”, sau religie chiar daca Dumnezeu se presupune ca a facut animalele si oameni si natura asta nenaturala, sau ideologie, si defapt iti dai seama cu usurinta ca omul incearca orice argument stie pentru ca nu e la nivelul in care sa poata accepta ceva diferit de el si intelegerea sa). Ma bucur sa traiesc intr-o alta tara decat Romania unde imi pot trai dragostea mea cea “altfel” fara sa imi fie frica de comentarii pe strada, priviri, sau batai, sau etc (etc deoarece sunt multe alte feluri de abuzuri cauzate persoanelor gay, ca sa nu incep discutia abuzuri impotriva persoanelor trans sau care se identifica in alt mod decat majoritatea la momentul de fata). Asa ca parerea ca “gay sunt numa pe afara ca is ei cu capu” e eronata. Doar pentru ca nu cunosti poate persoane gay in Romania nu inseamna ca nu exista. Multe sunt nevoite sa se ascunda si sa planuiasca o cale in care sa poata trai. Dupa multe experiente in abuz de altii mi s-a stins energia de a lupta si schimba parerea romanului, iar calea mea a fost sa plec.
Multi tineri pleaca din tara nu doar pentru salarii, ci cauta si drepturi, toleranta, intelegere, educatie. Si da, daca nu am mai fi atat de experti in cum ar trebui fiecare sa isi traiasca viata, da, as considera sa ma intorc. #MLOSTIP adica #MaiLasatiOmulSaTraiascaInPace#ZicSiEu #LgbtRomania#LGBTQ#Pride#BucharestPride#ClujPride#Diaspora#Romania#LoveIsLove#DragosteaEDragoste#Gay#Lesbian#Transgender#Queer#NonBinary#Asexual#Pansexual#Bisexual#ItsAllGood#Vintage#VintagePhotography
I was sitting on my couch, preparing to write this post and decided to get up and grab some water before I started. I’ve felt as though my conscience has been telling me that my pride has been the reason for misunderstandings and my ability to make amends, so I thought I would write and address myself and my heart issue.
When I came back to the couch, I decided to first open up my Bible app and read the verse of the day. This is what it said, “If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet.” (John 13:14) Wow God, I think You’re confirming what was in my mind. I started meditating on this verse. Jesus released all pride when He knelt down to wash the feet of His disciples. What is even more outstanding, He washed the feet of His betrayer, knowing full well what was about to take place. And He did it anyway. What an act of complete humility. As I’m sitting here thinking of the hurts I’ve felt from others because of the way I live and believe, this passage leads me to a correction I need to make in my own heart. Would I be willing to wash the feet of those who have hurt me? Would I be willing to set aside my pride and show meekness and forgiveness? I would definitely WANT to be able to do that, and in all reality, I think it would bring a lot of healing for all parties affected.
Think about this, Jesus knew ALL the answers, no one could come against Him and their argument still stand, He was literally a “know-it-all,” yet chose to become a servant. What a heart. What an example. What perfect love.
I, as an imperfect individual, am so far from knowing all of the right answers, yet I let people offend me when they say I am wrong. That is far from a teachable, humble spirit, which is what I’m called to be. I need a heart change.
So after I read the verse in the app, I clicked on a Bible study that was underneath called, “Grace and Humility,” and began reading. One Day 1, it begins with Paul addressing the Corinthians and the issues they had been having. He tells them in the first three chapters that the reason they were fighting was due to pride.

BEHIND THE SCENES
We see shelters emerging from the horizon. There’s not much else. It’s like driving through a lunar landscape. My senses are on high alert and the adrenaline is pumping through me as I jump down and walk towards the small village. What’s going to happen? What will their reaction be?
The Mundari: look beyond their nakedness, beyond the dust of the land, and see how truly beautiful these people are.
