A Letter to an ugly man

To whom it may concern,

You have many sides and I have seen all side of yours. Clad in those Armani-Exchange shirt and silk tie, you happened to be one of the high profiled executives and I know how proudly you think of yourself. Do you know that they hate you, those ladies especially when you touch them on their back and stare at their chest while they do the talking? You may not be surprised that I knew this stuff of yours because it’s just too obvious. They don’t find the guts to act against you for the only reason that you are superior to them and this job is the only thing that will bring food on the table.

But there’s something else that I knew about you that you maybe surprised. The person that you became after coming home, the kind of beast that you transformed in that white shirt and cargo shorts. As soon as you open up that beer can, the beast side of yours came to the surface and the rest will be another day of nightmare for your wife and kids to endure.

Almost everyday she shows me the bruises and red marks all over her face and her back. She tried to put on make ups, but they failed to veil those scars. Whenever she shared her stories with me, I held back my tears, for the reason it could make her even weaker. She told me that she’s tough, she could work it out and there’s no way than staying with you for the sake of her kids. But then one day she was sobbing hard, cheek reddened and tears flowing and with interrupted speech she told me that your 16 years old son had started to follow your path. He started to sneak out the whiskeys and cigarettes from the shelves. I was hopeless but she was helpless. I hugged her and let her cry for a while, and then drive her back to the same hell called home. Since that day, she stopped smiling once and for all. I knew she lied about the ‘being tough’ part.

You have disappointed your wife, your mother and your sisters, but all this doesn’t matter that much because the saddest part of this story  is that you have disappointed your daughter, the eight years old little girl that will hide herself in the cupboard whenever the beating and abusing starts. That’s how it all gets started, the trembled hands still trembling whenever she hears your footstep.

You have stolen her childhood and her dreams for a better future. Now every time she sees a man, your image will be haunting her all her life.

I’m sorry to say this, you don’t even qualify to be called a man, because real men don’t abuse. One day, all the scars might disappear, the wounds might heal but those moments will be forever imprinted on their minds. Everything that you did will be reflected back upon you, and regrets will creep in…but it will be too late..the damage had been done,there’s no chance of returning back because the heart might forgive but can never forget.

May God never bless you!

From
A Stranger that hates you

Ok peeps.let’s talk !!!

I have written this in conjunction of the 7th Annual ‘It’s time To Talk day’ a day that is, in the words of Violence UnSilenced board member Stacy Morrison “dedicated to just this one goal: to start and continue conversations about relationship abuse, domestic violence, and emotional abuse. This post was made to be fictitious but I can’t deny the fact that some part of this post holds truth.

If you know anyone in your close circles suffering from any kind of abuse, please for God’s sake help them to get some help. Remember your simple act of kindness can save a life, or more lives in some cases.Information on the campaign can be viewed here and there. Some words can make a big difference...
.........and LOVE SHOULD NOT HURT!!!!

Signing off,
The other Side of Me

  2. No one can muffle this voice.

    Sad part of it is,most among us continue to suffer without raising a voice, to fight against the abuse.

    Bravo for your this step gal...Love should not hurt!

  5. This is a great post and i fully support your views and equally oppose any kind of abuse. But i wish you also address this letter to those UGLY WOMEN who also exploit men. Sounds ridiculous and stupid but trust me in this modern corporate world. There are a good number of women out there who equally abuse men emotionally, sexually and financially. I know someone who destroyed a happy life because she was in a higher position than him and cud control his actions and forced him to do terrible things that destroyed his happy life. Sad part is, she just made that innocent gal face and eveyrone forgot that she even existed. she got away because she happened to be a gal and society never takes women abusing a man that seriously.

    But yes i agree that females are more subjected. And honestly, if we want to bring the change. we have to bring change right from childhood when kids are growing up. then only they will grow up and become normal things.

    Here is a question for you? WHy is it tat when a male teacher has sex with minor he is awarded 100% of time a jail sentence but when a female teacher abuses a male student, most of the time she is given probation or minimal sentence?

    And sexual abuse is just a part of it. I think emotional abuse and financial abuse is the biggest and most prevalent thing that exists in corporate world. Making a worker work 48hrs so that he/she cant go home, holding a women's pay for weeks, delaying a loan.

    Plase address your letter to the UGLY ANIMAL we call HUMAN BEING who always comes up the most innovative way to torture and harass its counterparts.

    Phewwww... this was a long post. he he.

  6. A good way to raise awareness about spousal abuse and the impact on children.

    I laugh at "May God never bless you."

  8. Speechless. Very very sad that women don't do anything to react. But some women are just destined to remain silent and bear all the pain. And the campaign is a lovely step put forward

  9. This is sad :( Bloody guys even don't deserve to be called as Man, let alone real man. I don't understand how people go to such extend. Losers. I will be glad to help if I find any girl suffering from something like this. And My help would be to shot right in the head of that asshole. And yes, I mean it. Thanks for bringing this out :)

  17. So sad. However, what's sadder is that it's all true and cloaked so well in our society.
    Very well written.

  18. Well said, TOSM.

    Abuse should stop, in any form, by anyone, with anyone. And suffering silently never works. And it should never be the case. The help should be taken. The issue should be discussed.

    Thankfully, as more and more people..(especially women) are getting educated...we hope that better sense will prevail..everywhere.

  20. Completely true!! I sometiems feel heart broken when I see women on tv or right in front of my eyes suffering a tough life. And the worst part is I can't do anything to at least try and make their life a better place to live!

  22. Yes yes very true!! A hard truth!!

  23. This is so well written. Domestic abuse is a subject close to my heart. Too many examples around me and the same hate for the ones who act this way and ruin many women lives.
    We have to stand up and shout out loud, give a hand to the ones in need, be a hear so they are never alone.
    You gave me an idea there. I might contact you on this next year, maybe a project we can work on together.
    Stay blessed. xoxo
