Getting Stronger Every Day

Getting Stronger Every Day

Female. Egypt

I have been called a slut by the people who are closest to me. 

To make matters worse, here in my country, if you are seen as a slut, you are not accepted and there are punishments you will face.

I kept crying for half an hour asking, “What did I do wrong to deserve this and how can I fix this?”

It was 12am, well past my bedtime, and suddenly out of nowhere, I stopped crying. 

I remembered that this is not the first time someone has labeled me as something bad.

I realized that I was strong. I made it through the first time this had happened, and I will make it through this as well.

What I am trying to tell everyone who is reading this is that your problems may never get smaller, but you will get stronger.

You are more powerful than you think.

Life can be messy, and we all deal with it in our own way.

Smile more and try to make other people smile too. It might sound silly, but it helps.
