Why did I create Wise Up?

"My self-love journey started around 7 years ago. My husband and I had been trying to have our second child for eight years with no luck at all. Anyone who has been through any fertility issues will know it’s a very stressful time.

 

It put a lot of pressure on our relationship and my mental health. I felt like I was failing at everything and letting everyone around me down. I lost my job as I could not concentrate on daily tasks; I was at an all-time low.

I wasn't the problem, I was good enough

I knew something needed to change, so I sought counselling through my fertility clinic, which was a huge turning point in my life. I began to see that there were different options and, importantly, I wasn’t the problem, I was good enough, and I deserved to be happy. I took a lot of time to work on loving myself again and forgiving myself; there have been many times where I have questioned myself or felt like I wasn’t good enough, but through the skills I’ve learnt, I know I can work past these times and even come out of the other side stronger.

You can be strong, even in the worst times

In February 2021, my journey hit another bump in the road - I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. I’d seen all of the adverts saying that 1 in 2 people will be affected within their lives, but never did I think that would be me, so it was a huge shock. However, my daughter was thirteen at the time, and I knew that I had to do absolutely everything in my power to beat the disease and show her that you can be strong and optimistic even in the worst times.

I'm so grateful for everything I've learned

Throughout my treatment, I practised everything I had learned previously. Yes, my body was sick, but I was so grateful for everything I could do and so positive that I would come out of the other side in a better, stronger place. I’m so happy to say that my body is now completely cancer-free."
