Everyone has a story – If you really knew me.

I’ve been watching the show ‘If you really  knew me’ on MTV, its heart wrenching. I think it’s amazing that people are out there are encouraging teens to tell their story. Everyone has a story that is sometimes hard to tell. Since I have declared February as the month of love for myself I have decided to start with a ‘If you really knew me.’

If you really knew me – you would know that I had a very troubled childhood which has led to a mental illness. I have bipolar type 1.

If you really knew me – you would know that my mum threw bricks through the lounge room window at me, then tossed me out on the street when I was 13.

If you really knew me – you would know that some days are so dark for me and I struggle.

If you really knew me – you would know that I will never give up and I will do whatever it takes to make sure my husband and children feel loved and wanted.

Feel free to share your ‘If you really knew me.’ Sometimes it’s great to just let it all out and to know you are not alone.
