I consider myself to be young even though I may have lived half of my life already. This blessed Life has taught me many things for which I am truly grateful for. Growing up, my family were never the type to enforce things on me, I was a girl and all ‘good’ girls behaved in a certain way. I had rules to follow, so I followed them, never really feeling satisfied, useful or even challenged. Living a passive life where the female of the species cooked, cleaned, smiled, prayed, didn’t drink alcohol or eat meat and held the family together with a fake mask of strength and togetherness. Well at the time it all seemed fake.
I just needed to get out there into the big wide world and find another version of me that I was happy living in. I have searched high and low for me, never being satisfied with what I have, ‘there must be more, there must be a way’.
