Thank you for spending time on my website.
My Story. My Truth, is a true story on events that have unfolded in my life. Being an Indian girl, second generation born in the UK; I have had a traditional Indian upbringing however I was given up by my parents to my mother’s mother at the age of six months.
This book looks focusses on the relationship between my mother, grandmother and I. These women, who are mother and daughter are very much yin and yang. How each woman raised me differently really shaped who I am today.
Along with an ex-boyfriend, who was abusive mentally and physically, which led me into a suicidal depression.
There is an African proverb “It takes a village to raise a child” and in this case, it is very much true. As life took me along its journey, I have met many people – colleagues, friend’s parents, neighbours who have helped improve my life or made me make decisions which made my life better.
I have added a chapter at the end where I share my tips and steps for helping build a better life. More specifically how to achieve a healthier mind.
I wrote this book to share my story, to help people who are going through a similar journey to realise they are not alone, that they too can make little changes in the present which can lead them to bigger life defining moments.
This year, is the tenth year since my mother kicked me out the family home, with no money, just a few belongings in two bin bags. During that time, I never told my story to strangers and now I feel is the time to open up and helping others.
There are charities out there that can help you, but for me, I did not want anyone’s pity and was willing to pay for support and help that I needed. I am not a charity. I am someone who will listen to you and help you enjoy a fulfilled life but you must be willing to work. For help and support please see the events page.
