'Abducted In Plain Sight,' Increased My Trust Issues By Leaps And Bounds

Seriously though, this Netflix documentary was immensely disturbing.

'Abducted In Plain Sight,' Increased My Trust Issues By Leaps And Bounds

If you're into both drama and watching documentaries, then you must watch this film on Netflix.

The story starts off by describing the characteristics of a close family friend and neighbor, known as "B," who had a strange obsession over a little girl, Jan.

Now, here's where the film takes a complete turn - B decides to manipulate Jan's parents into a strange sexual relationship with him in order to get them out of the picture and begin grooming and getting closer to Jan.

Not only that, but as soon as B has the opportunity to kidnap her, he not only does it once but twice, with the parents' acknowledgment.

Instead of calling the FBI or police as soon as possible, the parents actually decide to wait it out and see what happens, which is completely mind-blowing.

Poor Jan not only goes through an evident traumatic rape by B but is also psychologically mind-washed by him.

With all that being said, here's where the trust issues begin...

Truly all of the trauma and awful experiences would not have happened if the parents didn't forbid it all in the first place.

What kind of parents decide to wait out calling the police in the midst of a kidnapping?!

Parents should always be there for protection, and honestly, I believe those parents were just opening the door for this child molester.

Secondly, didn't the mom find it strange in the first place that there is close to middle-aged man constantly taking pictures, wanting to sleep with her daughter every night, and constantly want to give her, "hugs?" If I saw any man doing that to my own child, I would be worried and utterly disgusted.

Thirdly, why should you blindly trust a neighbor with your kids alone not truly knowing where they're going? My parents would always go with me to make sure that I arrived somewhere safe when I was a little girl.

Even now, they always know the location in which I'm headed.

I'm surprised that Jan nowadays still trusts her parents despite all those things that occurred.

She truly has a brave soul.

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.
