The Human Aspect of Taban

I felt imprisoned in my mind and body in my abusive marriage, but I didn't know how to get out. Growing up as a refugee from the Iran-Iraq war, I was born into a fight-flight mode, and to survive, I suppressed my trauma. Entering into my marriage, my self-worth was low, and I slowly lost my curious and rebellious spirit. After years of social control, I could barely sense my old self and felt dead than alive to the point where I saw no hope in living further.
