I may not assure you the sympathy of everyone but can surely promise my empathy, my belief in you.
One bad experience, one bad person and one bad moment can never take away from you the right to a dignified life. Your one step may look meaningless to you, but do you know your courage may be a rope of inspiration for millions of others to make an effort and crawl out of the abyss of abuse?
You are like that phoenix that was burnt to ashes and yet rose again.
For a person who has gone through gender-based violence or any kind of violence, the journey from a victim to a survivor is slow and long. Because even if you try to forget or move on, you are victimized again and again by the society which has only momentary sympathy for you.
My advice to you will be – Don’t expect them to feel the pain you have gone through, and don’t look for any approval from them. You are a fighter. You have already done your bit by raising your voice.
Always remember, Your courage will one day motivate many women to raise their voices against injustice. You will be the cause of their empowerment.

A ‘thank you’ makes a lot of difference in the way any woman in your life sees herself in your eyes. It might even mean the world to her.
I have not received any appreciation in the past. Probably never will. This is the experience of ample women across the globe. The expectation to be thanked for all the sacrifices she makes to keep others happy has faded. Yet the urge to hear few words of acknowledgement always lingers.
There is never a day when she pushes off her own burdens. She knows not to give up on people she loves. Women in general, are givers by nature and hence, give without asking anything in return. They have been the care givers and lovers since centuries however receive no appreciation.
It will mean the world to your mother if you answer her calls. If your sister seems lost give her a hug and assure her about her strengths. Tomorrow, there might come a day when you would have to make your daughter feel empowered with few words of wisdom every now and then. For the children to feel wanted and loved, you must be able to spare some quality time with your wife and be present in the moment.
