Conversations have been started, restarted and hopefully those going through this terrible ordeal would have taken some time for some introspection today. I took part in this campaign because Put simply I believe that No man has any right to physically or emotionally abuse and or manipulate a woman in the name of love. Remember your worth. You were in God's thoughts before creation, you are wonderfully and fearfully made, you are special to God- so special He cares about the number of hairs on your head. He has a special purpose with your name on it don't give anyone the power to make you think any less of yourself. #makeitstop Happy Women's Month Queens ?? well done once again @thando_thabethe for making a difference.
