  1. Yes, I would share it. The thing is no matter how stigmatizing a story is, it doesn't change the fact that it happened. As a victim of the experience who knows the length of effect it can have on someone, I would tell it in the simplest, sincerest way that I know how, not only to help the other persRead more

    The thing is no matter how stigmatizing a story is, it doesn’t change the fact that it happened. As a victim of the experience who knows the length of effect it can have on someone, I would tell it in the simplest, sincerest way that I know how, not only to help the other person but to also help myself. Sometimes speaking about something is the start of the healing journey. The moment you share it, you will feel as though a burden has been lifted off your shoulders. Moreso, if you dont, you may never get over the thought of what if my story would have made a difference in their lives.

    I used to think music alone would do it for me or that maybe if I binge watched my favourite movies i’d get over that feeling soon enough. Thing is, none of this things ever worked and if they did it would be temporarily. Personally, loneliness has a way of making me feel a number of things.

I learned to let myself feel this things, accepted that for me to get through it, I needed to experience it and remind myself that it is a phase that will pass. Everytime I hit rock bottom, I write myself letter that’s pretty much like having a conversation with myself expressing how I feel and to simply remind myself that it’s going to get better.

    So long a letter by Mariama Ba.
    First of all I love that the structure of the book is a letter. I love how the writer brings out different societal issues that people viewed as normal yet they were nothing but unjust and uncivilised. It’s a book that addresses what it was like to be a woman in her era. The kind of things she went through and the amount if disappointments she had to put up with because of societal beliefs and traditions only made her stronger, bolder and allowed her to find her voice.
