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.

    Hey Ruby, I’ve worked with some women who were in abusive relationships and the act of reframing can be useful. I wanted to know if you want to be listed on my “Resources” page of my Author website? If so, do a short write up of how you want to be listed.

    Hi, Ruby Usman.
    Thank you for sharing your story and the techniques that you have described.

    There are a couple of MUCH easier and yet VERY effective versions of re-framing that do not require any of the ‘confrontational’ aspects of the methods you have described in this article. I will happily share them if you are interested.

    Just my 0.02.

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

      Hi Deas
      Absolutely, I would love for you to share. In fact, I would love for you to write about this for my website if you are called to do so.
