Happy Birthday to me! I am officially 30 and let’s take a moment of silence to mourn that decade long hangover I now call my twenties. I’m still unmarried, childless, I have no mortgage. I’m five years away from freezing my eggs and ten away from adopting a child. That’s my life update for the moment. I haven’t been in a serious relationship for five or six years. My father called to wish me a ‘happy birthday’ and told me that I am officially an adult, which is his way of kindly saying, “get your shit together.”1
Hey how you going?
This may seem very left of field but I just wanted to say thank you for your bravery in sharing your personal experience on your blog about domestic violence..
I did a session on this just last week during crossroads with my year 11 girls and they were so engrossed in your experience and relating it back to their own relationships, how they would go about setting boundaries in their future relationships to protect their identity, integrity and self worth.
They are all curious to know how you are doing now, what you are up to and how you approach your relationships..1
