    It's with great sadness that I learnt that my beloved grandad passed away in the early hours of this morning He left this world happy and calm and most of all, no longer in pain because he battled with bad circulation in his legs for ever. He was scheduled to be released from hospital tomorrow, after undergoing a leg amputation and subsequently recovering well. I just don't know what happened, because the operation went smoothly The nice thing is that my grandad was able to see me get my pilot's licence, and before he left this world he found his father's Air Force wings badge, and he wanted me to have it. He was so happy and supportive of my strive to become an pilot and he was so supportive, despite living on the other side of the world. I've known my grandad my whole life and I'm 18, but it feels like I haven't known him for long enough

    I am so sorry for your loss. I'm happy that he got to see you achieve your license and it was a lovely gift for him to gift you with a family heirloom. He will live on in your heart always. I hope he rests in peace.

    Im sorry hun. Grandparents are so special. In my family i only talk to my grandma as my grandpa passed when i was in high school. Without my grandparents unconditional love i would not be here today!

    Yours sounds like he played a huge role in your life too. Best wishes and sending love <3

    I'm hella pissed off right now. I do me and if I dont need to involve others, I dont. Recently, I've been under the scrutinizing eye of my extended family. Usually I dont give a flying fish, but the gossip and talking behind my back is getting INSANE. I've been used primarily as a target against my immediate family from the extended family. Simply stated, my dad, his brother, and two sisters are in a huge fight and I keep getting brought up as the "family failure". Why, might you ask? Because I did an "implied topless" shoot and because I'm pagan/wiccan. I usually dont let it get to me, but the two things I absolutely love are falling under attack and it's really dragging me down. More backstory~ after some college I enlisted in the USMC. I did a fair amount of time, but due to a severe mental health crisis, I had to get out. I turned to mermaiding as a coping mechanism and its helped me gods only know how much.. it saved my life at least once. It was shortly after beginning my mermaid career that I turned to a combination of paganism and wicca as I found even more comfort in that vs the religion I was brought up in. I've been improving daily ever since my discharge, holding steady and equally impressive jobs, becoming more tolerant of my body and my self image, and I figured if I'm comfortable, why not try a shoot that empowers me? Plus, it's not like anything explicit can be seen anyway. But someone in the extended family found the image on my personal Instagram and took offense to it. And now I'm the "disgusting whore" that "doesnt believe in (their) god" and I'm "going to hell". I wouldn't let this bother me, but I'm at a low point right now, struggling to balance school with a full time and part time job, as well as trying to not let my inner demons return. I'm going through the grieving process as I just lost two of my very close residents (I'm a CNA) and one of my school mates all in the same day. The last thing I needed was this bull from the family. I'm just really upset right now and needed a safe place to rant. Name:  201901285061641258415484919.jpg

    Hugs! My family treats me like that too. I'm "the satanist druggy" because I'm HINDU and have to use medical cannabis for my extreme pain conditions!

    You're not alone, and you are not bad just because you found a different path!!

    Also, that's a gorgeous picture <3 i really like the way the lighting came out and the high level of contrast in the composition ^_^

    Your imagination is your only limit

    Aww thank you but that's water under my bridge a long time. I'm also technically a bastard, which is actually the real reason my parents both hate me. Its sad bc i have almost no connection or ties to my huge family but... I've made a much better one ^_^

    OMG that sounds so rough! Donít let it get you down, you should be so proud of all those things you are doing!
    If someone thinks itís ok to tell you that youíre going to hell for not believing the same thing as them, they are the one with the problem. And that photo is not even remotely slutty, it is beautiful and artistic! Itís only showing your back which is something that would be seen when mermaiding normally!

    Don’t hate me for this, but if I see one more video of a mermaid blowing kisses I’m literally going to throw up lol.
    Btw I think Luna’s photo is gorgeous
    I dream of a day when they may rise above the billows to drag down in their reeking talons the remnants of puny, war-exhausted mankind --of a day when the land shall sink, and the dark ocean floor shall ascend amidst universal pandemonium.

    I can so relate.
    However, if you're doing some kind of show, sometimes you're starved for ideas what to do.
    And smiling, waving and kissblowing is so much easier than other things, not to mention it might go down easier than menacing snarls or gestures

    When you finally use your monofin, love it, and then somehow blow out discs in your back (based on my symptoms, omggggg)
