standing against voilance

Posted October 24, 2021 from Pakistan

my name is mahem I belong to a family where my mother has always been emotionally abused to the point where we siblings could no longer have the sense to differentiate a good and manipulative behavior. and we became people, pleasers who could never say no or set healthy boundaries, in turn, we went through lots of heartbreaking events especially me who was broken 1000 times but all those things made me a strong and resilient human being who can stand up for herself today.

I don't complain about anything that I and my family has gone through as it has made us stronger human beings. my mom had no any resource to leave my father and nurture us alone so she stayed there just for our sake and remained steadfast in every tough situation up to this date. she could not live her best life but she tried her best to give us the best kind of life that is why I adore her I love her for keeping the family ties just for our growth and development and making us stronger.

Hello Mahem and welcome to World Pulse. I am captivated by your positive attitude. What you have encountered could have made you bitter towards life, but no, instead you are here today, encouraging us all. Life lessons are valuable lessons, though it steals from us or it rips us into tiny pieces. I like the way you reframe your past, there are many rewards. Your mother is adorable. She has made huge sacrifices in the name of love and motherhood. She deserves the very best. Please encourage her to follow her dreams and to speak/write. This is a safe platform. Thank you for your touching story.

All the best to you and your family

Dear Mahem,
How are you? Thank you for trusting us with your story about your mother's heroic decision to stay married despite the abuse. Most women prefer to bear the pains for the sake of the children especially if they have no means to support themselves and their growing children. It is for this reason that the economic empowerment of women should be given a priority so they can earn their own income and develop the courage either to leave the marriage or assert her rights, again for the sake of the children. Very few women will prioritize themselves. The sad or happy experiences of our parents has a huge impact on us. We hope that women and mothers will be equipped to take care of themselves and their children.
Would love to hear more stories from you.
Huggs.
