Day eight features a photograph by Abdul Halik Azeez.

Use A Dictionary. The genders often speak in different languages. A word that sounds harsh and coarse can actually denote love and tenderness when translated though the specific emotional and situational context your counterpart is in. Practice patience and empathy, understand the multifaceted  meaning and not merely the shallow word. Distrust your ears, trust your heart.

– Halik

Watch this blog for the next 9 days. We’ll be posting a featured photograph each day till 10 December as part of WMC campaign against GBV.
