Daise1

It all began when I moved to the UK. I was ‘Mummy’s little girl’ until I started secondary school and saw how other children behaved towards each other so I decided to do as they did in order to fit in. At first it was a way of fitting in but, as time went by, it became who I was. I turned out ...

Controlled by the “game”

ley

I didn’t want to play the game anymore. I didn’t want to do what he was asking me to do; I didn’t want to touch him in those places anymore, but who could I tell? Who would believe me? They would only say it was my fault; after all, I agreed to play the game… Soon after the abuse started ...

She thought she knew, but she had no idea…

WUG-jo

I had anger problems and because of this I would lash out on my mum. Things in my house were unbearable. There would be constant shouting, arguments and just no peace whatsoever.

Everything is blurry and out of focus.  You blink and try to concentrate on your friend’s face to process what she is saying but your brain cannot make out the words which are coming out of her mouth. You’re really trying to focus but the room is spinning as if to distract you.  Then, you see something pretty.  It’s a ...

Genius! Me? Impossible!

genius

Being a student myself, I know that the pressure of achieving optimum grades can become so overwhelming, that your only wish is to have a brain transplant with geniuses, such as the likes of Da Vinci or Einstein. As inconceivable as it may seem, apart from their background and nurture, there wasn’t anything particularly unique that made these figures reach ...

The difference between an asset and a liability

asset

Recently, I went to a conference which took place at the Hilton Hotel for a seminar for women who want to be wealthy, and learnt a valuable lesson. These two words – Asset and Liability – are twin brothers but are complete opposites. From looking up these two words in the dictionary I found out what they mean and it ...

Give it a go! What’s the worst that could happen?

giveitago

It’s much better to fail than it is to have never tried. How will you know the answer unless you asked? How do you know you’re going to be wrong unless you’ve told that you weren’t right? You don’t! If you don’t ask, you’ll never learn and, if you never fall, you’ll never learn how to get back up and ...
