Is there a shortage of money for 2021? Better investing your money may be the solution.
“What helped me stick the pieces together was work. Work saved me. I have to wake up. I have to take a shower. I have to remember who I am. Friends, family, therapy, too. But work was the that saved the most, “said the presenter.
Calabresa revealed that her love of work was also the reason she was silent for a while, postponing the complaint against Melhem. “Because of work, I didn’t react before. I was so afraid of suffering. I was afraid of being boycotted. Harassment is such a scary subject that we try to pretend it is normal. You go on as you can,” she explained.
The comedian said that she continued pretending normalcy, trying to be nice, showing excessive gratitude. “But there comes a time when it starts to do so badly that you have to pop the lid off that cauldron.”
Dani even made an alert on the subject. “Nothing authorizes harassment. No joke, no message authorizes harassment. That day she was affectionate, laughed, drank, it doesn’t matter. Nobody has the right to force physical contact with anyone. Permission is needed. It is very difficult to deal with all this, to organize the thought. I have my pieces glued together, I am light. And in therapy “, he concluded.
