I have no idea about your beginnings…. I do not know how you started your journey in life. The family, studies or career you have experienced, nor how your journey as a parent has begun.
I wonder whether you began with your heart filled with hope, expectations and dreams about this beautiful future ahead of you. I wonder whether you were nurtured by the right people around you that saw you, celebrated you and when they looked at you their eyes were saying "I am so glad you are in this world, you little person..!".If that's the case, my friend, then I am so glad for you.
For some of us, our beginnings in some areas were quite different. Whether it's a relationship or friendship that started off with the promise of bringing joy in to your life, which then ended up bringing disappointment and pain or whether it's parenting our child which has been a much rockier road than anticipated….
I have no idea what struggles you might be up against this day, what challenges on a physical, emotional or social level that you, your child or the whole family may be facing. You may still be living your life in the aftermath of abuse or loss. I realise that you are facing your own unique battles valiantly day in day out, trying to hold on, even when your circumstances have seemed to have taken the best out of you and there are days in which you feel, "I AM DONE"...
...And you might need to hold on to your stresses and questions and anxiety or just raw anger ..and that's ok.
There are poeple, however, available to give you the tools you need for your journey. No one will ask you to "tidy things up" before you reach out. But if you want a companion on that path that will acknowledge your battles and your courage in the midst of them and will come alongside to empower you, do reach out...
Don’t forget to reach out if you need us. Our email is firstname.lastname@example.org and our number is 01372 747 440.
Have a great week,
Lu and Eva
