Story Five

When I met Pause I was an emotional wreck, I didn’t want to be here. I didn’t think I was emotionally strong enough to cope with the pain of losing my children. I could no longer communicate.

I couldn’t face anyone or the world outside of my house. I was so vulnerable, I didn’t think I deserved to be happy.

I thought I would never meet anyone with how emotional and unstable I was. My relationship with my younger children was breaking down, I started to feel less connected to them. I thought I was nothing to them, and they deserve so much better.

I could barely look at myself in the mirror, I couldn’t even smile because I thought I didn’t deserve the privilege to be happy anymore.

Since joining the amazing Pause, my life has changed dramatically. I can imagine my future in a way I could never before. I have learnt so many things about emotions and managing my mental health. The relationship between my children and me is a record breaker and the love we have for each other is incredible.
