      So it’s been a while since I last posted where I think I talked about starting college last year. The year has flown by so quickly and I’ve just finished a complete set of first year exams! This is such an achievement for me in itself because the abuser that I was with for so many years preventing me from furthering my education and it was only this time last year that I had told the police everything – fast forward a year and I’ve done exams and preparing to apply to uni!!!

      The exams were challenging but having gone through what I did, it has put things into perspective for me. I thought I would never get this opportunity but yet here I am doing what I love to do most, studying and educating myself on so many new interesting subjects.

      Very well done Whathaveidone, this is a huge achievement! It’s inspiring for us to see other women who have experienced abuse moving forwards and achieving their goals. I think education and work are so empowering and something many abusers know this so they try to ruin for us, so it’s awesome when we can take our power back. My abusive ex got in the way of me completing a course I was doing halting my career progress. Thankfully the people that run the course were supportive when I told them what had been happening and have extended my access to it so I’m studying it at the moment whilst looking for work ๐Ÿ™‚

      Best of luck with your exciting new career, university is a great experience with so much to learn, interesting people to meet and social/hobby opportunities and you can enjoy all of this now without anyone trying to ruin it for you, enjoy xx

        Thank you SunshineRainflower. Glad to hear you’re also progressing with your course too. We won’t let them get in our way! I can’t wait till I start uni when I do – it’s been my lifelong dream.
