Hope 💜

I’ve realised recently that I’ve started to make peace with my journey. My journey bringing my son into the world was not what I ever imagined, nor what I’d hope for, but I realise now it’s mine and nobody can take that away from me. Amongst the trauma and fear are unforgettable moments. Those moments brought us closer together and created a unique bond. Being able to look back at photos without being filled with panic tells me I’m getting better and that I’m slowly moving on. It’s a step in the right direction taking me to where I want to be 💜

Ally, thank you so much for these beautiful words of self-reflection. Reaching inner peace after our traumas is part of reconciliation. Lived experiences means growth. If we can let go of hurt, anger and worries just for the day, that helps us to find new strengths and believe in hope. Take always good care of yourself first before you spread your beautiful energy.

That's a great story of hope, thank you for sharing. I don't suppose any of us would choose to have had PP but we can't change it so acceptance is good. It is part of who I am. 💗
