Going through oppression has taught me how to just not say anything and ignore people. Yesterday when my brother came home in the evening he saw a plate laying out in the kitchen and yelled at me. He said you are going back to leaving your plates outside and leaving a mess outside. As well as, that no one in this house is my maid and I just looked at him. I was like that is not my plate then he was like who’s is it then and I was like it is mom’s plate but don’t worry I will clean it. After that, he was like well then should I tell mom to come and clean it when you know she can’t since she is paralyzed?? And I was like obviously, she can’t do it don’t worry I will do it. He was like do it right away as soon as you see a plate in the kitchen. Now, my question is he says he is NOT my maid then how can expect me to clean his dirty dishes?? does that mean I am his maid?? or is it just his way of oppressing me?? He has hit me a while back where I had bruises on the left side of my body.
His wife and he wants to move out of this house since they claim that I interfere in their lives. Even though the truth is that I am not allowed to travel by Uber/ Lyft and see my friends. As well as, I am not allowed to go outside and get a job since they claim that if I go outside I will bring home Covid even though ironically they are the ones who go out every evening. I just do NOT want to speak up and say anything since then my brother will hit me again and his wife will find reasons to tell me that I am treating her like my maid or whatever nonsense. Thus, I created this blogpost to speak about my feelings and emotions. As well as, inspire other women who are going through the same to not commit suicide since suicide is never the solution to oppression. Therefore, I believe that I can help you overcome domestic violence since I have gone through it with my brother being the oppressor as well as my dad verbally assaulting me which is another story for another day.
