Ira Khan started sexual abuse when she was 14 years old. In a video posted to Instagram, Aamir Khan’s daughter said: “When I was 14 I was sexually harassed. That was a bit of a strange situation as I didn’t know what that person was doing and if they knew what they were doing didn’t happen every day. So it took me a year to make sure they knew what they were doing and that they are doing it.
She said, “My parents took myself out of the situation. Once I got out of the situation, I didn’t feel bad anymore. I wasn’t scared. I felt like this wasn’t happening to me anymore and it’s over. And I went on. It wasn’t something that marked my life and something that could make me feel bad. “
“I never talked to anyone about anything because I assumed my privilege meant I had to handle my stuff alone, or if there was something bigger people would need a better answer than ‘I don’t know’. feeling that I needed a better answer and until I got that answer, my gut feeling wasn’t something to bother anyone else with. No problem was big enough to think about too long, “she continued.

HINDI VERSION – LINK IN BIO. I never talked to anyone about anything because I assumed my privilege meant I had to handle my stuff alone, or if there was something bigger people would need a better answer than ‘I don’t know’.

Old habits are hard to unlearn. It takes my worst feeling to make myself believe it’s bad enough to be taken seriously. And no matter how many things I have, how nice people are to me because of my dad, how nice people are to me because they love and care about me … when I feel a certain way, some not pleasant way, then how much can rationally try to explain these things to myself? Shouldn’t I get up and try to fix things instead? And if I can’t do that for myself? Shouldn’t I ask for help? . . . #mentalhealth #privilege #depression #repression #divorce #sexualabuse #letstalk #betterlatethannever #letitout #depressionhelp #askforhelp
