I would say I have I overcome a very abusive and unhappy childhood, although I did do one thing right, I saved my sisters life when she was aged 2 years she had walked out in front of a car and was sat on the bumper, as it started to drive away, I ran out and screamed to alert driver to her being there.
However my young adult life didn't get off to a very good start, by my getting involved with someone who turned extremely violent and abusive, I stayed in that marriage for 7 years, it ended after he tried to kill me, literally. I'm a survivor though.
I have 3 amazing Sons, when I look at them I know anything else I may have done wrongly but being their Mother is one of the most amazing achievements Ill ever make. I've now married a most amazing man in turn I know how it feels to be Loved Unconditionally, and to Love Unconditionally, I've been fortunate in many areas and as a resuilt I've been able to help and support others, many of them at times, because its what I wanted to do.
If I give I give, its given unconditionally. I've never held a grudge and can also forgive and forget, I love life and I've also known some truly amazing people as both friends or aquaintances, I've had 3 girlfriends since the age of 7, I also had a best friend, for over 30 years.
I believe I've made the best of my life taken the rough with the smooth, faced diversity and adversity, on many levels, dealt with it and gone beyond it, and overcome its effects. I always aim to help not hinder,I try not to tar people with the same brush, and like to judge a person on his her merits, for who and what they are.
Im not perfect, but I recognise that and mostly do what I can to deal with that aspect of my personality. I've never been physically violent to another person, child or animal, nor would I want to. I think I've made a difference, we all do I'm sure...
