I instilled fear unknowingly.

Following my few posts I have made here, one can make a right guess and tell who I am. Yes, I am a survivor. Survivor of a gender based violence.

Working tirelessly to rescue or make a change to someone's life if not the whole nation. Allow me to take you back a little bit. I come from a very large family. Meaning, I have siblings who were born after me. My sisters, cousins and nieces. Many are witnesses of what a went through during my time in marriage. Am afraid, disappointed and sad to know that some still live in fear. 

I instilled fear to them unknowingly. Some view marriage as a death sentence. Men as predators. How now? Not all men are bad. Not all are evil. Some are God sent. I have a very tough assignment. But I still believe in my counselling. I still believe I can make lemonade out of my lemons and make people enjoy a sip.

Hey friend.
So long as am alive. I will keep pushing. I will keep raising my voice higher. I will never rest till I fulfill my purpose here on earth. I pray that every footstep I make, will leave a footprint of beautiful memories behind.
Thank you for enjoying my lemonade. Hope I will never starve you with an empty glass.

Kisses dear. Guess what? You are the first one to wish me Merry Christmas. Merry Christmas too.

Dear Felister,
You have survived and into embracing using your life to create changes that you know too well need to be changed. Charge on, fierce and beautiful change-maker. Your lemonade is strong medicine, the medicine needed by women, by communities, by us all. Your strength and determination inspire the world we are working toward.
In sisterhood,
Tam
