Every book has a cover, why judge then?
Hi, my name is Elizabeth, officially, but to anyone who should know better it’s Liz and I’m concrete evidence that being brought up correctly and going on to make the most detrimental life choices are not necessarily mutually exclusive.
I’m 30 currently and spent 25 of those years getting to the point at which I had to admit how wrong I’d been and consequently how severe a turnabout I’d now be facing. So, doubtless to say that now, after 5 years down that path, I am far from where I hope to be but at least I am not a stagnant pond but a bound stream, with a destination and a purpose. I owe much of my optimism to the following:
- My partner of 7 years and dad to my daughter Livvy who has been a source of strength throughout our homelessness
- Having a relationship (a good one) with both sides of our families again
- Acknowledgment of the many opportunities I have to change, being born in a country that allows me such luxuries
Finally, not allowing homelessness and the attitudes of those opposed to it [homelessness] to damage my character.. That is so important and if more people remembered that everyone has a secret and something they need to change then maybe that grass wouldn’t always seem that touch greener and our own lives would in turn receive the love and attention we surrender to another
story of success.
