Freedom and Hardwork #WriteBravely

Read Part 1Part 2, Part 3 and Part 4 of the story.

Karthika tried talking to Rajiv zillion times to trust and support her. But, nothing worked. She couldn't satisfy his ego. Moreover, he started drinking regularly and abusing her.

She decided to file a divorce to Rajiv and move out from his place. Divorce might be one of the best decisions of her life. She never thought that coming out of a bad relationship is such a relief.



Even though she didn't contact her parents and friends frequently after marriage, they stood like her backbone when she needed strength. Starting a business from scratch needs positive spirit and hard work. 

She rented a small room for her tailoring business and hired a few housewives with a meager salary who accepted to work part-time at the shop. She trained them in tailoring and embroidery. She started taking online orders and used social media and the network of her school students to promote her business. 

Initially, the financial problems were too much. She continued her teaching job in the morning by taking tuitions in the evening and on weekends. When orders were more she worked hard till late nights. 

She saw a hope in her future with the growing business.

Good she left an abusive relationship. No good ever comes out of it. Now she was independent.

A stroy of rising above your fears and fighting for your worth. Really a courageous tale

Walking out of an abusive relationship is the best decision one can tke in self interest. I am sure Krithika will now find peace and strength both, to realize her dreams.

Glad she came out of the dead relationship and took a stand for herself. Just an observation, spelling of meagre is incorrect.
