"Don’t walk home by yourself if you don’t want to get raped."

Being good to each other is so important, guys.
I am so happy about this
Today I was sorting through my things, having made the decision to move farther along South. This choice was something I really struggled with. I found this in one of my boxes, that was packed away and put aside during a time in my life where I wasn’t making very good paths for myself. It was my Grandfather’s, one of the few things that I have from his passing. I had grieved it’s loss and hadn’t been able to replace it, so this was just such a wonderful find.
Getting out of situations that are not healthy for you is a really emotionally sticky thing to do. This was something that affirmed my choice and causes me to be glad that I’m moving forward.
