Hi Rosie, I’ve just read your article in the Daily Mail. I felt everything you said and like so many have been there too.
I was four months pregnant when my ex left me and our 4 year old daughter. That was six years ago and it’s been one hell of a journey.
Trying to bring up a very distressed 4 year old, a new born baby and throw in the ex turning out to be the ex from hell. I couldn’t get my head around my new world and the fact I was in turmoil but having to carry on with every day life.
Somehow you find a way and slowly I found I was ok and in control of my new life. It’s taken me a long time to find my way but this year I set up my own business and FINALLY went on a date. After a few dates it didn’t work out but I am so glad I did it.
Everything happens for a reason and as awful as going through a break up with children in tow is, it makes you so much stronger and you won’t accept anything other than what’s right when the time is right. In a very strange way I think when you’ve hit rock bottom you’ve faced your worst fears so after that you can handle anything! It’s actually a gift in a weird way!
I just wanted to share a small snippet of my story and I like you feel excited about the future, it’s all there for the taking and accept no less than pure happiness.
