      I adapted this from the film. When I watched it I knew I was about to become homeless and jobless again. It just resonated with me and gave me a sense of wellbeing when I needed it.

      “To be at home you have to find your own path. To be alone doesn’t mean you have to be lonely. My life is my own and the future is up to me.”

      Wants To Help

      Great words Eggshells.

      Sometimes the path we clear in order to move forward can lead us to previously undiscovered opportunities. I’ve had so many opportunities since leaving my abuser that I would never have had if I’d stayed with him.
      Leaving him was the best decision I made for myself and my son, staying with him would have been the worst thing.

      That’s really good to hear Wants To Help. Keep clearing that path.

      Leaving is hard isn’t it. Hard in so many ways and more terrifying than I ever could have imagined. It’s so worth pushing through it all though. The reward of an abuse free life is just so liberating. Everything feels lighter now.

      Like you, leaving was the best decision for me and my sons too. xx
