Portrait of Alina Fernandez Castro

Do you have advice for women who have lived through difficult situations?
“Maintain decency. You need to be able to find yourself, and judge with love and respect.”

Have you been able to avoid reproducing what was done to you?
“Of course. Though most people repeat the same pattern, and reproduce it when it comes to their children. I find that abominable. There’s no excuse. These are people who have no decency. You have to find a balance. You need to find what is good, and never do harm to others because someone did you harm. There’s a saying by Say Darshan that I really love, “Help ever, hurt never.”
