Parenthood is more about the lessons we learn than the ones we teach. And ideally, when we enter the uncharted waters of parenthood, we do so with the love and support of a partner. Unfortunately for my guest today, Alex, that wasn’t the case.
Alex was only 20 when she became a mother, and her abusive partner of four years left when Alex wouldn’t terminate the pregnancy. Simultaneously, Alex needed to navigate motherhood and relearn how to take control of her life.
This conversation takes many twists and turns, but when you’re trying to create a fresh start, perhaps that is exactly what you need to do.
Alex is quite open as she talks about her abusive relationship, how she had no control over her time or money, and the moment when she thought becoming an escort was her only way out.
Alex is learning to take control of her life by taking control of her money, and through the process Alex has learnt how her financial health is interlocked with her physical health and emotional health.
I wanted to share Alex’s story as I admire her strength in trying, her willingness to change, and her love to be the best mother she can be.
I hope you enjoy x
