Heartbreaking, Confused, is this the world we live in?

So..I prepared a post the other day that I wanted to post, well, yesterday but after I woke up with the news of the new president of the US, I’ve gotten a bit sad and confused and angry, my post would not have been talking about what I was feeling.

I did want to write yesterday but I was so heartbroken and angry that I wanted to sleep on it first. Well, my feelings didn’t change much from yesterday. Actually, they didn’t change at all. I am super confused about how someone can elect somebody that just is insulting and honestly he is so misogynist and thinks that we still are in the 19th century.

I am speechless, I don’t know what to say, I don’t know what to do. I don’t know if you follow me on twitter too but yesterday I wrote one tweet that truly explains how heartbroken I am:

“America, you’ve always been my dream since I was 6 years old, 24 years later and I feel like, for the first time, I don’t wanna move there.”

I’ve texted one friend of mine, that had this big dream and he told me that he won a VISA to go to America, I mean, I am like heartbroken that for this dream of mine is not gonna happen. Cause I can’t believe that the big country that we all love and look up to became such a dark hole when it was such a light. SO many inspired things happened in that country: Obama was president for 8 years, I still remember the feeling of history when he became president, LGBTQ can legally get married, Bin Laden was caught a few months after Obama became president and more.

And now? People are scared to go outside, how can you be scared to live your life? How can you be scared to be yourself? What did we become?

I am confused, I don’t understand this world that we live in anymore.

What people knows about me is that I’ve NEVER been a lot into politics but I guess you don’t understand truly how important it is until you are working and paying taxes and you have a voice that needs to be listen to.

Hillary’s concession speech made me cry like a baby, her word was so..heartbreaking. We all thought she had it, we all thought no one could have voted for him.

This election will affect all the world, it is affecting me a lot. I had a big dream for so long and now I feel like it’s crushed. I feel like that door has been slammed into my face.

I’ve just watched a video of guy melting down on TV: “Hillary.. women needs you, minorities need you, I need you, Chicago needs you, we all need you, this country needs you.”

It’s just heartbreaking.
