Oc­to­ber 2017

Chat - - True | My Diary -

My mum was cry­ing again.

But this time, they were tears of hap­pi­ness.

As I twirled in front of the mirror, wear­ing the most in­cred­i­ble wed­ding dress, I felt beau­ti­ful.

So much had changed. Most im­por­tantly, I’d met the love of my life Joshua, in Jan­uary 2015.

Be­fore then, I’d had a cou­ple of girl­friends.

One was preg­nant, and I’d be­come like a mother to her daugh­ter Kash­mire.

But the re­la­tion­ships had bro­ken down. Now, Josh made me feel so spe­cial.

He didn’t care

about the scars. Was al­ways say­ing how beau­ti­ful I was.

With my con­fi­dence boosted, I stopped cov­er­ing my face in make-up, up­loaded nat­u­ral snaps to so­cial me­dia.

And now, here we were, about to ex­change mar­riage vows in front of all of our fam­ily and friends. To­day, no­body was look­ing

at my scars.

With Joshua on our big day
