My True Story #No16

Five years ago I tried to take my own life. I failed... and I’m so grateful I did...” - Natalie Joy

“My real father wasn’t around as a kid, so I had a step dad. Who I adored. Although my mum raised me pretty much herself. As a teenager I had a violent relationship where I was bitten, punched and spat on. In my 20’s I had a relationship where I was cheated on and lied to. Time and time again. I got away from both of them but the scars remained. A short while after my step dad and mother separated. I didn’t see him before he left and I’ve never seen him since. It’s like death but worse. Because they are out there - but seemingly don’t care. Five years on from then I stand today. A business woman, a friend, a daughter, a lover. All of which I almost threw away. Five years ago I tried to take my own life. I failed... and I’m so grateful I did. Hang in there. Things always get better.” - Natalie Joy
