It has taken me a long time to find self worth and drive and now I have its going to cost money which at the minute I haven’t got.
A little bit about me … I haven’t really had the support I suppose a lot of kids have growing up as a result I suffered quite a bit of childhood trauma and have struggled to get anywhere, 2 steps forward often led to 10 back, abusive step parents being one aspect and a borderline mother (which as I got older I later understood why I have struggled for so long myself having borderline personality symptoms myself and have tried to manage these difficult feelings I have.) I have been up and down practically the whole of my life 27 now, abusive relationships, hostels and a short time in care for a long time it seemed like the hell would never end.
I now have a daughter of my own, 8, she is my world and since settling a bit I have tried my best to break the cycle, me and her dad haven’t been together since she was two but she see’s him and although the relationship between me and him was like any other ive ever known she is loved by us both. Since her dad I met a man who can only be described as well not a man, I have since left him. We are due to move soon, new start and new beginnings but due to my mental health I haven’t been ready to go at work full time and I’m giving me time to get right fully so I dont end up making the same mistakes.
My support system is non existent and I have pride aside needed to ask for help but financially theres not many places to turn. Since last year I decided I would like to be a Nail Technic and eventually start up a little business from home to coincide with any other work I might have, as a single mum I am under no illusion that I will have to do 2 jobs for me and my babe to have a decent life I dont want her to go without or struggle ever.
I have found a course that will enable me to be a fully qualified nail technician in 4 months its an NVQL2 and cost £1,300 a nail bar that I can set up from home which I have seen second hand for £220 to get things going I believe I can make it work, I just need some help to get there. I am also requesting help to get a driving licence here is £43 and some lessons which varie in price but I am asking for around £200 as it will help to be mobile when I become qualified.
If there is any one willing to help I would be so grateful.
Thank you. Abbey.
