Ruby Usman

Ruby was born in the slums of Karachi, Pakistan. She has experienced sexual abuse at the hands of many men as a child; some of them strangers and others, close family members. She grew up as a Muslim woman and experienced violence as an integral part of society and culture. She now writes about these traditions and hopes that by starting these debates, a new face of Islam is revealed. A new Islam with love, compassion and forgiveness for ALL irrespective of their gender, race and colour.

    Hi, Ruby Usman.
    Both thanks and congratulations for sharing your story. I have heard a few stories and have one of my own and none of them have been easy.

    The healing CAN be done alone. How-wevver, the person is not likely to know for sure just how well they have managed to heal until they are ‘exposed’ to a ‘testing’ situation – like a new relationship or seeing somebody else in a similar situation or hearing a similar story.

    That said, it IS almost always easier with some help, especially an understanding partner.

    Just my 0.02. Thanks again.

    You have a wonderful day. Best wishes. Deas Plant.

      Hey Deas
      Thank you for your comments. In some ways, the healing journey is always done alone… but I guess when we have support then it makes it easier and when we have the “testing” situation, we get further feedback on what’s needed next…
      I am so impressed with your wisdom both on LinkedIn and here and really appreciate your taking the time to comment
      Thank you
