2 years today!! 2 years since I made the decision to leave a marriage and a situation of domestic abuse.
I’m pretty sure I said the same things last year, but here goes;
It’s not been easy, leaving was hard, I had thought about it for years before I finally had the strength to actually do it. It’s still not easy, I have a lot of issues that I’m dealing with.
I’m completely grateful to my family and friends for their continued support through all my ups and downs.
I’m so glad that chose to leave. I feel like I’ve got my life back, I can breathe again!
I am making the most of my second chance at singing. I’m eternally grateful to have music in my life once again. Singing helps me to focus, its very uplifting too. I’m so happy to be doing what I love and I feel like I’m connecting with myself again....I lost myself through the years of being in a controlling and abusive relationship. I was so unhappy and I became someone that I could barely recognise.
Today I decided to change my surname on my social media accounts back to my maiden name....it’s only a small thing (I haven’t changed it legally) but it’s significant for me. I must thank my singing sister @lisamarieglovertunes for the idea to use my maiden name as a stage name.
I try to take each day as it comes, I still have bad days but I also have good days. I do my best to focus on the positive and remind myself of how far I’ve come in these 2 years. Onwards and upwards 💜🙏🏼🧡
I hope that one day I’m able to help other people who have experienced similar things and inspire them with my story x
