While some people give up on life immediately they are thrown a curve ball, this African-American lady who survived a gunshot wound has taken to social media to redefine the true meaning of resilience.
Identified as @takieyahreaves on Instagram, the beautiful young lady looks like every other woman out there until she reveals her enormous belly scar, she got from a gun shot wound that shattered her stomach walls.
Sharing a photo of her belly scar which makes her look pregnant, she took to the platform to share her experience carrying the scar as a result of the skin grafting surgery which was done after some skin was taken from her thigh area to cover the damaged stomach walls.
@takieyahreaves who got shot in 2018, revealed that she gets a lot of compliments and congratulatory messages from a lot of people due to the bulge on her stomach. Rather that find it offensive, she stated that she has come to accept it as her 'bullet baby and her God-given badge of honour'.
"When People Say Congrats I Say Thank You Bcuz This Is My Baby My Bullet Baby I Named Her Siya Yes It’s A Girl And I Embrace Her I Talk To Her I Thank Her I Love Her & When I Get My Last Surgery I Will Cry Over Losing Her Some People Will Be Disgusted Others Will See The Blessing I’ve Died 7 Times Over This Belly This Belly Is My Strength I Am Not Ashamed & Everyone Who Truly Love Me Made This Our Baby Our Miracle We Are Not Ashamed We Are Honored To Walk Around With This God Given Badge Of Honor This Is My Testimony This Is My Story."
In another post, @takieyahreaves shared a photo of herself in the hospital, recuperating from the surgeries. She spoke about how people who promised to stay by her side abandoned her. Despite all of this, she revealed she is ready to loose everybody as long as she does not loose herself.
She also spoke about the difficulties she faced, moving around as the injury affected her ability to walk upright. @takieyahreaves who considers herself blessed by God, stated that she won't stop talking about it because she lived through it.
