10 Day Blog Challenge Day#5

 Hey! Almost there!

Half way through this challenge on Day#five, luckily I had time to prepare something in advance as my day has just been slipping away! Without, further adieu and a caution of the intensity from here xx

Today’s challenge is:

Six things you wish you’d never done: 


1-   I wish I hadn’t left school before finishing my college exams and final year. I left shortly after turning 16 once leaving home.

2-   I wish I hadn’t pushed my mum out of my life, once I came about the sexual abuse. There could have been a chance to avoid such a long relationship with J. But I guess there is also no reason to get hung up on what ifs, buts or maybes’!

3-   I wish I hadn’t let the abuse cycle  in my life go on, for so long. Even though I was too young to have known the full implications; I still wish I’d never participated. I wish I were born assertive.

4-   I wish I had never gone to visit Dion last year. *This guy took advantage of me last year, throwing my relationship into turmoil*. The emotional significance here was, because he had been a large part of my life and someone I truly trusted. Ouch!

5-   I wish I hadn’t let TR get too close. This has broken my trust, and cautioned my heart.

6-   I wish I had never given up martial arts. I want my physique back! #It’sON

Thanks for following, what an interesting challenge. Certainly digging up things about myself I’d never really considered before. I truly urge anyone else, wanting to try this – to DO IT. What a great way to get some perspective on the things that make ‘you’.

I guess if you were anxious about sharing in public, even writing them down is just as effective.

Have you started YOUR 10 day challenge yet?

    I am really enjoying these glimpses … and I do find the idea of doing it myself somewhat appealing – a great tool for introspection!
