Daddy's little girl

by Lucinda
(Australia )

20 years ago, today, my life would change forever.
My father would die from a freak farm accident & I at the time only aged 11, would lose her Daddy, her Rock her one true love - her father.

Life is a journey....... I stumbled across your site. I have suffered postnatal depression, anxiety and also psychosis on & off over the past five years as I have been trying to unlock the love from within, to learn to love again and to trust again. It's been tough but I have had many good times also. I feel everything happens for a reason & know my dad is with me. I have helped many people who have lost a loved one to heal & becoming a mother has been one of the hardest things I've ever done. To love a child is like no other love but like I said its hard at times to love another when you feel that you may loose them. Over the years I have learn't to become guarded to build barriers to protect my heart from the grief n pain to shut down & numb myself.

However I do know that God has given me the gift of becoming a mother & I am slowly learning to love again, to trust again, to try and enjoy my wonderful husband & beautiful boys, to enjoy the journey & to heal from the past & enjoy the present :-)
Love,light & laughter
