How to Ask – Real Stories

Early childhood High school Primary school Staying connected


I was pretty scared. I was, I didn’t want to be open with myself but then I just got tired, I was that close to leaving my boys. I was that close to leaving them and just throwing it all away. The counsellor, that was a lot helpful. She just, come you can do it, I thought, when I told her my story and I cried to her. So after that, I just feel stronger now.

I’m myself and I’m doing what I’m supposed to do with my boys. So yeah, it’s good to be open, it’s good to open up to other people about your feelings. You keep it in there, then you lose it, you think too much, you get depressed. There’s help there for people. Try not to, like, think about chucking their life away.

Even parents, single mums, mums and dads, just tell them, be there for one another and just do the right thing. And have someone there to, have someone to talk to.
