July 5, 2022 02:28 PM
Well-known actress Nadia Jamil is establishing a new standard by speaking out about her horrific experiences with sexual molestation as a child. Despite the fact that most celebrities prefer to keep their private lives hidden and are often unwilling to talk about their traumatic pasts.
Now, the actor herself has spoken up about her own horrifying experiences with sexual abuse.
"I was four the first time I was abused sexually," wrote Nadia Jamil on Twitter.
“It has taken me years to fight depression, sadness fear and a shame I had no business feeling,” she said. “There is a way from the pain to the peace. You are never alone.”
Talking about her trauma is brave on its own but tweeting about it also served the very important purpose of destigmatizing child abuse, even if one tweet at a time. Nadia’s tweet also started an important discussion on what parents can do to preempt the abuse of their children.
There was an outpour of love and support for the cancer-surviving actress, who has never shied away from raising her voice and talking about the most painful parts of her life.
