“When I was 5, I watched my father verbally and physically abusing my mother. Soon, I also discovered the truth about my father, that he was an adulterer. My faith in a family was already broken and it was further weakened by both my maternal and paternal grandmothers who, it seemed to me, enjoyed tormenting people. They used black magic to achieve their aims and divided their own children by investing greed in them.
On top of being physically challenged, I ended up distrusting all relationships in my life and attempted suicide at the age of 13. But I managed to come through everything. All because of one person: my childhood best friend and my husband to be. When he proposed to me, what he said touched my heart: I can’t say I’ll be the best but I promise that history will not be repeated. I promise our daughter will never experience what you have been through. I promise to let her witness that I will never love anyone more than her mother.
Please accept my shoulder to comfort you forever.’ Because of him, a once depressed and vulnerable girl is now a strong woman and a psychologist helping people deal with depression. He taught me to search for the good in life. He became my strength and allowed me to believe in happiness. I wish every woman finds a partner who lifts them up and makes them believe in themselves. It is the best support they could ever have.”
