Don’t take family for granted. Because you never know what might happen. For me personally I haven’t seen my father for a while now. Not knowing where he is or what he is doing really breaks my heart.
I see all these girls walk out of my school holding their dads’ hands and it makes me so sad that my dad and I never got to do that. He never once came to one assembly at my school because of his work.
I am so grateful for my mother and the rest of my family for pulling me out of this deep dark hole I am now free of. I don’t know how I would survive without her. I treat her like rubbish sometimes and all I want is for her to be happy. And I know how hard it is now balancing her work and family life on one stick.
Ever since my father left I have realised how important family is to me. I want to thank all my family and friends so much for helping me through it. I really couldn’t bear it if one of my family members left like that. With no “I love you” or a “goodbye.”
My father would pick me up every Wednesday afternoon after school to have a sleep over. He would slick back my wildly curly hair into a high pony tail. I really do miss that. The sleepovers ended when I was about 6. He lost custody over me at the start of last year.
I’ve been through a lot with bullying so it helps to get my feelings out on some paper. So you have heard my story I am now going to tell you how to deal with it. Well not deal with it. How to make it better.
You need to have great friends. My friends have been so kind and caring with me. I really couldn’t ask for better friends. Your friends will help you though anything. You will need some positivity. You need to stay positive. If you aren’t positive it will be even harder. Being positive means not thinking about it. I know how hard it can be but it really makes it a whole lot easier. Go out be happy. Make new friends. Be confident in you. The last thing I want to say is be happy, be kind and stay awesome.
