Four Year Anniversary

Yesterday (13th March) was my four year anniversary.

This was the day I landed in the UK with my then 12 week old son, after being in an abusive relationship.

This was the day I realised I was no longer going to punched, hit, strangled, suffocated and then some.

This was the day I realised that even though my abusive ex-husbandΒ agreed my son and I should go to the UK and he would follow, I knew he wouldn’t.

This was the day I realised my son was not going to grow up following in the footsteps of his father.

This was the day I got my life back – even though I am still not completely back on track.

This was the day I said “No more. Enough is enough”.

This was the day I started to live again.

  1. Yes Happy Anniversary Persia. Getting back on track takes time unfortunately. Im doing it myself. Keep building on what you have. Get a decent savings account together if you dont have one.

    • Thank you for your kind words. It takes too long and admittedly, I do become impatient at times. But I do know everything will happen when it’s supposed to. You’ve given great advice for which I am grateful. Keep going, as will I. We’ll get there one day. ❀

    • Thank you, Tony. I hope you and your wife are well.
      I wouldn’t say I have a great life… but I am alive. I have my son and we are both healthy. Not forgetting I have God too. Before, I would have wanted so much more. But my experiences – as traumatic as they were – have surprisingly made me humble.
      It’s good to hear from you my friend.


  2. Amen Persia! Happy Freedom Day. I too left like you, I too was treated like you. I too am getting better every day and I am so happy that you are an amazingly strong woman. Your stories and sharing are healing others. There are silent readers who come and read and never say a word, so don’t stop because what you are speaking out on is changing lives so others can get up and walk out too. Love you friend, hug our lil man – He’s got the best mum! You.
