Home – One of the primary necessities a human needs. The safest place we can ever think of. It gives us assurance and comfort of not being harmed. But that is not the case for some. It is heartbreaking knowing they are unsafe from their own home. Domestic violence is not limited to women only, but also children and another gender. With the diversity of today’s generation, discrimination and violence are also on the rise. The ongoing pandemic due to COVID-19 has a high impact on the increasing domestic violence during MCO. Movement Control Order, also referred to by local and international media as lockdown, is implemented to flatten the curve.

It is to prohibit mass gatherings, travel abroad, restrictions of entry of tourists, closure of schools, and closure of government and private premises except those engaged in essential services. The world was put on a halt. Some took this time to catch up on things they have been putting off due to a busy day at work. But for some, they just wanted the nightmare to end.

 

A Little Goes A Long Way

Domestic violence results in a long-term negative impact. It often leads to depression and anxiety. The trauma will haunt the victim for a long time. Worst, it is possible for the victim to commit suicide. This is why a healthy support system is necessary. There are ways to help ease the suffering:

  • Maintain consistent communication and support from family and friends through email, phone, etc.
  • Try to maintain daily routines.
  • Engage and make time for physical activities and enough sleep.
  • Seek care from a trained medical practitioner for symptoms, which includes injuries that require medical attention.

Continuous healthcare services for issues related to violence during this pandemic is possible through an online platform or through phone whichever is feasible for your situation.

 

Act Quick!

The initiative of a domestic violence victim will go to waste if the people she expects help from will not act and do their part. Their hope of being saved will shatter, and who knows how they will be able to handle another torture. If meddling with someone else’s business will bring them light, it is better to interfere before it is too late. Bear in mind that they are with their perpetrator who monitors every move of the victim. It is best to find out how to establish communication but discreetly avoid the risk of additional harm to the victim.

One kind act goes a long way. Every minute counts when it comes to saving lives. We must never doubt when it comes to saving lives. We can do something in our little way. It is much easier for us to use a lot of platforms where we can extend our help. Even the start of small conversation will give a light of hope.

We still have a long way to go in totally educating people against domestic violence and its impact on a person. The proper tools in educating people against domestic violence are a great way to help decrease these incidents. With this, we can give hope back that a home is our safest place, sanctuary, and comfort. There is no need to fear being at home.

A Home-based Entrepreneur and Blogger For me, being a home-based entrepreneur, parent and blogger has been quite an experience. Here’s how I got started on it all. Where I’ve been Becoming a blogger and a hardcore, home-based entrepreneur wasn’t exactly a planned career action for me. I can almost say I didn’t see it coming. It all started when I got pregnant with my first child. Back then, I was still working as a flight attendant, and I have to admit that I really loved my job. But when that baby came on board, I decided that I wanted to be as involved in my child’s life as I could possibly be. Once I’d made my decision, I swung into action. I quit my job and quickly made plans for a new (and different) life with the baby in mind. My foray into the glamorous world of entrepreneurship and blogging was a little more abrupt. This started a lot more recently.   I first came into contact with these products sometime around two years ago. In 2018, my aunt-in-law would be the first person to preach to me the wonders of Aulora Kodenshi. I confess that I was very skeptical back then. As I mentioned earlier, I didn’t see myself as an entrepreneur (or even a blogger for that matter). I felt I was comfortable in my role as a housewife and that picking up endeavors like that was for people who had more money to “waste.” I decided to continue to keep my focus as a good mother and an ideal housewife. The plan was, if I kept feeding my family good food and making sure that they all exercised regularly, there wouldn’t ever be a need to buy any of the products my husband’s aunt talked to me about. As it turned out, I’d not end up buying the products; I’d also become one of its most vocal advocates. How I Got Here Our second child got a case of eczema when she was about 18 months old. Ever since that time, every so often, she’d have a rather severe outbreak. The doctors would always tell us it was nothing serious, nothing to bother about, and we believed them for the most part. A reason for this was that almost like clock-work, she’d always get better after every 3-6 months. All of this changed though in February 2019. She had an outbreak, and we thought it was normal until she scratched so hard she drew blood. We tried everything to no avail. Frustrated, I decided to try SHIRUTO, one of the many products from BE International. In no time at all, the eczema and even the scars cleared up. I was so excited, I took to my social media page to share my joy, and that’s how I got into blogging and entrepreneurship. Plans for the Future I’m happy with where I am right now. I have a healthy family with a career I want to see grow. I don’t conform to the classic stay-at-mom routine of waking early in the morning. I do my best work at night when everyone’s happy and rested. The goal is to continue to remain healthy and inspire everyone around me to be free and keep those positive vibes flowing strong!
