Modern Day Phoenix
Full-time working single mum of two beacons of light, love and strength!
Someone said to me: “I don’t know how you do it!”
With a lump in my throat I replied: “I wasn’t given a choice!”As cliché as it may sound it’s true!
The person who for years made think that I was going crazy & tried to break me to my core, later, with tears in their eyes went on to say: “You’re the strongest person I know; you have an enormous capacity to overcome every obstacle that comes your way!”
After years of being emotionally & psychologically abused, I decided that the “lessons” my children were learning from this were not the ones that would instil the principles and morals that I wanted them to have and follow. With an intense amount of anxiety and fear, I faced the “beast” and “grabbed it by the horns”. Enough was enough…constantly walking on eggshells, measuring my words and tone of voice to not “cause trouble” wasn’t going to cut it anymore!
