Just finished listening to the book “The Apology” By Eve Ensler. A wonderful book which made me come back here and write. Because, I needed to share this.
Everyday I try to take walks for 30 to 45 minutes. I listened to this book for four to five days. In this book Eve writes about the Apology she wanted from her father, which abused her. When I was listening to this book, I found my self saying fuck you fuck you fuck you, no no no. And I am just a listener not the author, not the person who has been through all these abuse physical and emotional. It takes so much courage to write such a wonderful book.
As a woman we have faced so many abuses either physical or emotional. So many of them from close family and friends. Why should this be the norm? why should from every five girl one has experienced sexual abuse. Why aren’t we thinking of how much things would’ve healed if men in the society learned to respect woman. Just why?
The audible had a short exclusive talk with the author which in that she mentions if people learned to apology. how different things would’ve been? She talks about the history of indigenous people and how they have been hurt, and they never heard an apology. So we better learn to say Sorry, it’s been long enough!
The biggest message for me was that if my soul knows something is wrong and I don’t have the power to look at the person I hurt and tell them I am sorry, I better not do that.
I try not to spoil the book, you need to read the book and watch your feelings as they rise!
