A child’s mind cannot comprehend the basic difference between ‘so called’ right and wrong values. We at the tender age of five or six years cannot differentiate between the thoughts and the reality. On growing up when our psychological and philosophical selves are shaped up, we develop a better insight into our lives.
Being a small girl, i like any other child was not aware about my body and how to protect it. I was not aware about the mindsets of people and kids out there. We’ve watched movies and heard of some stuff which starts from the word physical.
Rapes, sexual assaults and harassment faced by women. Not only by women but also by little girls, are getting frequent today. But what if someone throws a light to the fact that even 10 or say 12 years back they quietly existed.
Physical abuse does not only link itself to the word ‘rape’, it can be a simple touch or a contact which the victim does not feel comfortable about. I had quite a similar phase in my life 10 to 12 years back. At that age, i was not at all aware of what happened with me but today i am and therefore i decide to put an end to that pain myself.
Even boys become the victims of such physically and mentally painful acts. But today each one of us has to face the fact that one mere episode of life cannot destroy our dreams. Some or the other day, we all need to get up make an end to that pain and sourness.
Speak up for yourself and let people know what their limits are. Behold yourself with all your strength. Whether you yourself have been in this place or know someone with such an experience.
Please, empower and motivate them to talk about it. Stop such acts before it gets worse. We are not supposed to feel haunted with those nightmares.
Dare to dream even when life makes you ‘weak at the knees’, for everyday gives us a new chance. Live it.
