The Human Aspect of Sogra

I grew up in an unstable and poor home during the war in Afghanistan. My step-father physically abused and sexually harassed me. Because of this, I quickly became a distant, emotionally closed, and shy child. The abuse escalated when we fled the war as refugees, and I did not see any reason to continue.
