Good Morning dear writers! I wish us a new blessed week. I will be sharing with us the story of a resilient woman I know and I shared the story on hive last week.
" Let's talk about a resilient woman,.it can be your friend, family member, co worker e.t.c. What is her life challenge, and what did she do to overcome the trial she faced?
This story happens to a woman of a close relative, we were not actually close to share eachother's story but I somehow heard of the story and we became close since then. She is older than I am, by the time I knew her she was a single mother with a little boy. She happens to be a widow who just relocated back to her home town (where we live). I never knew the full story of how she became a widow until I was closer to her. She would always advise us to go for our dreams and fight for our right and what we want.
Her life challenge began when she was about to get married at the young age of 24. She had dated her fiance for about a year and they were planning to get married. When it was time for her to bring the man she wants to marry home, her parents rejected him. They want her to marry whosever they choose for her. Moreover, they claimed the guy she wants to get married to has an unstable job and he's an orphan. This woman fought with everything she has, she talked with her pastor and others who can help her but her family says no.
As time went on, she had to let go of her love, her family is not ready to bless her union and she needs to dance to their tune. She got married to the man they wanted for her. He's rich and influencier, but after two years of their marriage, her husband met an untimely death. Things began to go wrong for her, when her husband's family accused her of her husband's death. They chased her out of their house, they didn't allow her to take their son away, she cried and pleaded with her husband's family to allow her take her son but they disagreed. She was forced to stay with her friend who was also her co worker at that time, she managed to focus on her work because that was the only means of survival for her at that time. She didn't want to go back to her parents house but somehow they heard about her situation and managed to help her get her son's custody back with the help of her former lover who was now a lawyer (the guy she wasn't allowed to marry)
Despite all odds, she refused to go back to her parents house, she struggled a lot with her son and finally relocated to our home town. She met a new guy, who loves her and they will soon get married. At this time, she does not allow her parents to decide for her, she does not allow her ex husband's family to claim her son, she had the child's custody as her mother. Even when she was always accused as been the cause of her husband's death she never allowed that claim to ruin her. She was courageous and defiant.
Thanks for reading ♥️♥️♥️
