Elaine L

I would like to thank the wonderful Elaine L, who encouraged me to start writing in the first place. She listened to me as I poured out my heart and soul to her, outlining my traumatic experiences – without judgement. Whilst a few disappeared, she remained and is a follower of my blog. In fact, she was the very first!

Having no idea where to start, Elaine kindly done the research for me. She would send me messages explaining what she’d found out in the early hours of the morning. I remember thinking “Does this woman not sleep?!” 😀

I am so grateful to know her and to have her as a friend. We haven’t seen each other in years, and I’ve not known her as long as I’ve know others, but the saying is true:

“Friendship isn’t about whom you have known the longest… It’s about who came, and never left your side…”

Thank you so much Elaine. I couldn’t have done this without you.

Lots of Love ❤

  1. Aw bless you so much lovely Persia! I felt I’d known you for years the very moment I met you on set, and think of you daily! You have a gift in writing, just one of many – you’re a wonderful mother and an inspiration for all who’s life you touch! Looking forward to a continued friendship and seeing your little one grow into the lovely young man I know he’ll be – with a mother as selfless and wonderful as you he cannot fail to be! 🙂 XxX

      Thank you for the compliments. I really hope to see you again soon. xx


    • Hi Elaine,

      I know I don’t have to do this, but I am going to do it anyway. Persia is wonderfully strong, courageous, beautiful, loving, giving, and compassionate woman. I have not known her anywhere near as long as you have, but I adore her just the same. I hurt for her that I cannot take all her struggles away so she can just go on from here and be completely at peace. I hurt at reading the things that he did to her and all the fallout and damage she has been left with because he is a monster. I hurt because in many ways she is me and I am her.

      Having a stable support circle is so urgent as survivors of domestic violence. Over that, ones that challenge us to stay motivated and provide a stable source of encouragement even when others falter or fall away are sometimes all we have to keep us going. Thank you for bringing her here to me. Persia is a gift, and I know that she has helped encourage others even though she is unaware. Thank you for being there for her and reminding her how amazing she is. Because right now, she doesn’t even know just how amazing she truly is.

  2. It took a little while for me to respond as I really didn’t know what to say… and I still don’t!

    Thank you so much for your kind words Amy, as well as your continued support. I’ll never be able to repay you, but know I am eternally grateful. x
