Good Morning, Shine Bright Today
Just watched the live stream of Angela Merkel and Barack Obama. Loved his last words about the importance of each and everyone's commitment in our society. Don't blame others for not doing the right thing. Stand up and try to make a change. Be brave, raise your voice, use your abilities, your strengths, your knowledge to make a move. Educate yourself and help to educate others. We are all responsible. Someone needs to start, others will follow and soon there's a huge amount of people able to make not only a small but a big change. .

My grandmother used to always tell me that i have to sit like a lady. Close my legs together while i am wearing a skirt. Cross my legs together while wearing pants. I never understood why i had to grow up by their rules and not just act the way i wanted. They used to dress me like a boy. They used to cut my hair. I was not feeling myself. My mother never trusted me and my grandmother called me a whore when she saw me smoking in the streets. "Please don't smoke outside, i dont want people to judge you. We have a good name." Then my brother started smoking and they called me 'bad influence', when i was bringing home the best grades and my teachers always had the best things to say about me. 
But my family never congratulated me. I was expecting something that i never heard. Even today. 
Then i realised that i dont need anyone's approval to go on with my life and people are never pleased or thankful for what you are doing just to make them happy. 
I grew up in a toxic family. They used to call me names because i was getting fatter and fatter and they took me to so many doctors, i can't even count them. When the doctor told them about my rare syndrome, they stopped trying and they started telling me to not speak in public about my syndrome because people don't understand. I was too naive.

BUT TODAY, i am proud of what i have made so far in my life. I am glad that no one has the power to tell me how to sit. How to talk. I shut my ears and inside of me, i wish these people knew the power of knowledge. I wish they knew. I am not ashamed of spreading my legs  i am not ashamed of anything nor even talking about my health issues. I love myself and i feel pity for people who try to find always something disgusting to say and the parents that try to control their kids.

WE HAVE DREAMS AND NO ONE WILL STOP US 
PS. Spread your legs. Make your voice louder.

//A letter to the daughter//
You are young and your life now seems simple. But life is not that simple darling and i want you to hear it from me. As you grow up you will soon understand that there will always exist people that will judge you based on your clothes and shoes. People that may call you names for maintaining friendships with the opposite sex just because they cannot wrap their tiny minds across the fact that a guy and girl can be just friends. People that will notice your beauty but may completely ignore your brains. People that will deny you privileges based on caste or gender. People that will never approve of your independent thinking. People that will pull you down for you were born to stand out. And you may always wonder why. But darling it isn't your job to worry about them. Your job is to keep your head ans heels high and walk strong. For you are no damsel in distress, you are a Queen born to rule. It isn't going to be a simple task, i wish i could tell you otherwise but then again, simplicity was never that much entertainment.

Quando una persona di cui ti fidi e a cui vuoi bene abusa di te, è importante riuscire a trovare la forza di parlare,  per poter dire finalmente  #oramisentoacasa
