Weekly Photo Challenge: Journey
I’ll tell you about my personal journey. The last two years I have made a personal journey which I do not want anyone else to have to go through. I became a mother again in old age which was just wonderful. My little son’s father abused me several times and our son was present on several occasions and he also exposed him to danger. I reported him and he was convicted of three abuse and unlawful threat. He was sentenced to several months in prison.
I moved and got my own home. I felt very bad and was very scared. I had hit bottom. Every day was a struggle to regain control of my life and to feel good again. I’ve gone and spoken to very talented people who work daily with battered women and it has strengthened me a lot. I have applied for sole custody of our beautiful little son, and it gets a hearing in two weeks regarding custody. My son’s father has a restraining order and must not come near me and it feels good.
I know I have not reached the highest step of the stairs, but I am on a very good way. There are many positive things that have happened these two years. I have found a new hobby in photographing and I have met many great new friends that I like very much. The assault has also given me a whole new perspective on life and I’m extremely grateful that I am alive today.
Take care of the little things in life and live the life you want to live so that YOU feel good. Every day counts and step by step ….
