What is the main point of your story?
To uncover an issue of loneliness. I attempted to say that with the right ecological attitude toward yourself, this is not a problem. It is an inevitable life experience, which makes you stronger. I wanted to convey an inner drama of anxiety and pain. And, that it is not deadly. And, that every time we live through it, we get more resilient and able to transform pain into something positive and into self-love.
Why did you share this story?
I decided to share this story, because it is about my personal transformative experience and a path to leaving suffering behind. It is the fact that pain is part of our life. And, an ability to live through it is a skill, which is very useful in our ever-changing world. It’s quite simple to re-conceptualize loneliness as seclusion, balance, and rest.
Do you feel you have given something to other women?
Anyone who is not afraid to sincerely share the most intimate feelings definitely gives something to others and to the whole world.
Has taken part in GTG impacted you and if so, how?
Taking part in the project was a new experience of self-expression.
Do you have a message for other young women about GBV?
It’s an individual responsibility of everyone to decrease gender-based violence. Firstly, one has to recognize violence inside herself. Violence always masks itself and gets expressed in different forms... It is important to listen to yourself, learn to treat yourself holistically. See a specialist, a psychoanalyst, a psychotherapist etc. if you cannot cope with the problem alone.
