The Human Aspect of Maria Munira
I felt used like I didn’t own my body and that it was for others to use as they wished. Growing up I experienced abuse towards me and others close to me. In an effort to survive, I suppressed the memories along with my emotions. Safe in our new country I tried to focus on building a new life, but I ended up in an abusive marriage twice, where my childhood and my lack of self-worth came back to haunt me. I struggled to see any hope or future for myself.
