Today i feel empowered :-)

I just wanted to share with all my friends on here:

Today i stood up to my ever controlling husband after he decided to drive like a mad man with my children in the car. He scared my children to the point they were hysterical. Always amazes me just how passive i am til someone hurts my kids (imagine a 5' 4" female hulk hogan and that was me. Except i didnt rip my clothes off or turn green) Anyways an arguement followed and i really stood up to him. Felt great and afterwards when i thought omg i didnt end up a blubbering mess i felt really proud of myself. Told him to go be with his little gf cos she is welcom to him I DONT WANT HIM BACK lets hope he gets the hint! :-)

Well done you.... I know how hard that is..... Im proud of you...

Keep going :-) xx


Thankyou :-) x


Well done you

Hope that's told him

I relate as well , I am very mild mannered , but anyone , even when I am full of anxiety , upsets my kids , well they are adults now , but even now & when they were younger , that is the only time I can think of when my anxiety goes out the window & I am in there

Think its a motherly instinct to protect , shows you can be strong & what a good Mum you are

Feel proud





Well done!! :)
