My dear friend

This month’s winner

Nine months ago, I was sitting in a hotel room with my baby, my passport and a suitcase. My marriage had hit a patch so rough I was considering returning to my native country. The birth of my first child had been traumatic and my stepson had just moved in, changing our family dynamic. I felt unable to cope with my situation and unsure of who to turn to.

I had only known you for a year, but at the drop of a hat you came to the hotel and just hung out with me for a bit. We went for a walk, watched some TV, you made sure I had some food to eat, and you helped me to restore some much-needed perspective. I realised I was not alone in finding marriage and motherhood hard work and that I could go a bit easier on myself. You gave me the courage to talk to my husband about what was bothering me, and the self-esteem boost I needed to start gently exercising again.

About Psychologies

This month, we’re urging you to ‘trust yourself’. Wonderful words but, not especially easy to put into practice. That’s why we’ve dedicated 18 pages in our dossier to discovering how to do exactly that – exploring everything from to how to turn up the volume of our inner wise woman, to looking at the latest research on making the best decisions. And it’s not what you think. Be inspired and get ready to move forward. Plus, how to reinvent your career and 10 of the best budget boltholes.
