“Like many of us, also I, as a single parent with three children lived for several years in low income housing. Money was tight.
Restrictions- pressure- often depression- conforming to making due- sacrifice of work and social circle- family issues- extraordinary stress- guilt- isolation- grief- loss of self- exhaustion and being stuck in it- trying to please everybody, creating workable relationships with everyone in the family – and just plain suffering was my life.
My challenge and ultimate success came with accepting responsibility, accepting that my life was different, not fighting against what could not be changed and creating resilience. You have the most difficult job out there, and not many people want to be in your shoes.“
