They see the world in a different way and I admire that sparkle in their eyes. I read a really disturbing, but true, story about a Bangladeshi girl who was domestically abused by her husband, mother-in-law and brother-in-law. She was brave enough to share her story with the world, but even braver to show the face behind it.

No matter how many words I write in this post, nothing will express how shocking her experience was.

And most importantly, growing up to be great human beings. Not only that, on top of the pressure of school and college, they’re pursuing hobbies, teaching themselves skills and putting themselves out there.

These kids are truly a force to be reckoned with and are actually a huge inspiration to me.

When I watched an interview she’d done for TV, I couldn’t fathom how such a beautiful, strong and confident woman had gone through all of that.

She explained that she had been brought up to be a strong woman all her life, so hearing how she reacted uncharacteristically to everything that happened after marriage, just didn’t make any sense to me. But when you really think about it, unless you’ve been through it, you have no idea what goes through someone’s mind when in a situation like that.

She probably couldn’t help but think of the dreaded ‘what would people say’ if she had then left her husband and when these ‘people’ found out, what impact that would have on her and her family’s lives. I haven’t been through it myself, so I would never be about to understand it fully.

Not wanting people to know that she’d had a failed marriage, not wanting to have to start from the bottom again. But there are parts that I can see as clear as day, because we belong to the same culture, which I despise sometimes.

You don’t want to admit the reality of the situation to yourself and make excuses, for both the abuser and abusee.

The sad thing about this is that I believe that culture and the society we live in play a huge part in this.

You need your loved ones to think that you’re doing well, and you need outsiders to think that you’re living the life!

The burden of this pressure is so heavy, that you end up losing yourself.

So I often reflect on my life and wonder, what have I achieved? The thought of being this beautiful kid’s role model just scares me.
