Going through a divorce as a South Asian woman feels like you failed at life sometimes. The way the community labels you, the lack of emotional support you receive, and the pressure to stay with someone because ‘what will people say is isolating. It makes it harder for women to leave marriages they shouldn’t have been in to begin with. The first few months of any divorce journey is the darkest, you are not a failure because your marriage did not work outSania Khan – Writes in TikTok Video
