A Journey of Little Footsteps: What You Never Saw

I hated primary school. 
They say be careful what you wish for. 
My family lost everything.
I did not go to school for roughly a year.
I stayed home every day.
Watched everyone go to school.
All of a sudden being unhappy at school did not compare to just not being there.
Our electricity was cut.
We had no food.
Bailiffs took little of what we had left.
I hid what I thought was valuable when I heard them coming.
I hid my dog.
But today, when people see me.
They judge.
They don’t know.   

What I lived.
I lived in fear of judgment.
Until I realised I was being judged.
Their judgments………….
They insulted my life and my experiences.
You have no idea.
Do not judge a book by its cover.
Till today I have never let anyone open me.
But why not, since they have made their own assumptions, but never walked in my shoes.

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.

Walk in faith, believe in yourself and understand. Those who judge are blinded by their own thoughts.

    Thank you so much! In a much better place now!

  3. Those were incredibly hard times and being reminded brought tears to my eyes. We survived to tell the tale and I am proud of you and who you have become as a result of those awful experiences. A word for the judgemental: “Do not judge, or you too will be judged”. Matt 7:1.
