Ever Tell Yourself You’re In Love With A Deeply Difficult Person Instead Of Facing The Truth?

“Abuse thrives only on silence. Break the silence.”

50 million and still rising. All the more in our nation due to lack of stronger and timely legal intervention and societal attitude.

Do take time to listen.

  1. To quote a line from another blog, “Unless we experience certain things personally we never really know what it feels like.”
    Domestic abuse thrives because it is rarely spoken about. I’m not sure about other countries, but in India, too much importance is given to the institution of marriage and little or no importance is given to what happens in private within a marriage. Most families advise domestic abuse victims to “somehow make the marriage work”, the primary stated/unstated reason being, “What will people say?” Divorce is considered worse than domestic abuse or even death.
    She rightly said that anybody could be a victim or perpetrator of domestic abuse, irrespective of gender, religion, caste, economic status, educational background, profession, place of residence, etc.. This is true of all social ills.

  2. I remember seeing this TED video sometime back and being shocked by it. I don’t know, Rekha, I always questioned similarly. Why? I guess till now I haven’t yet understood their answers.
