he said‘my absence is strong and warm,it will holdyou.it will teach you how to miss.how to be without.andhow to survive anyway’-nayyirah waheed, how my father raised me
I always told myself that I’d never take my own life because of another man. I thought women who do that lacked self-worth. But little did I know that I would be one of these women I looked down on. Although, to my defence, I can say my scenario is a bit different because the man I tried to take my own life for was not a lost lover or boyfriend but my very own father.
