Ms. Magazine invited me to write an article to empower women to have more ease with #metoo. I’m so grateful for the opportunity to write for them and sharing the tools. Here’s a small piece.
You don’t have to be victim of #metoo anymore
Ever since I was a kid I’ve been fascinated by voices. I would perform, sing and dance. I loved to socialise, interact and at the same time separate myself, be unnoticed, so I could live in my own little bubble. Daydreaming as the days went by, my parents were fighting a lot. Even though their divorce was horrendous, it was the best thing they ever chose. They showed me that you can choose something different when things don’t work and that was such gift.
Especially with what happened after that. My sister and I would spent alternating weekends with one of our parents. The weekends with my dad my uncle was babysitting. A man with a lot of authority in the family. Everybody loved him. I did too. He would check if I was asleep at night, take care of me, bringing comfort in difficult times. Until that night he would lay next to me. And another night and another night. What to do in your safe environment, your own bed? I was shy, I was asleep and when I wasn’t I pretended to be asleep. I never dared to speak up.
