xoJane published an article written by a woman still living with the man who sexually abused her as a child and included her picture and the state she lives in. 

HERE is a link to the indiegogo campaign to raise funds to get her out of the dangerous situation she’s in. Any help would be hugely appreciated, spread the word <3

When one is alone, imperfection must be endured every minute of the day; a couple, however, does not have to put up with it. Aren’t our eyes made to be torn out, and our hearts for the same purpose? At the same time it’s really not that bad; that’s an exaggeration and a lie, everything is exaggeration, the only truth is longing. But even the truth of longing is not so much its own truth; it’s really an expression for everything else, which is a lie. This sounds crazy and distorted, but it’s true. Moreover, perhaps it isn’t love when I say you are what I love the most - you are the knife I turn inside myself, this is love. This, my dear, is love.
