Looking back at 2021 it would be easy for me to describe it as a horrible year, indeed many horrible things happened; ending a 15 year relationship is no small thing, and having to switch to sharing your child is not any smaller. I’ve struggled with my mental health, and at times I’ve felt desperately alone and found myself parked at the side of the road crying with no one within 100 miles to run too. Yet, on reflection I think 2021 has been a year of incredible personal growth and allowed me to rediscover who I am, find strength and comfort in my friends and family, and feel closer to friends and family than I ever have before.
