“You grew up in care? You look to smart to have grown up in care you have a suit”
TRUE STORY. A leaving care team manager I just met said this to me at an awards evening last year. And trust me comments like these knock you for 6 and take you right back to being that child no one wanted to connect to but labelled.
I am not sharing to shame I am sharing to change PERCEPTIONS and help people understand this is still happening to children every day and being completely honest my reply and mindset following this when I was younger still caught up in my trauma and abuse would have been a lot different.
NOW....it’s just fuel to my fire to change mindsets and perceptions through educating, engaging and inspiring.
Children FEEL every word...they are particularly sensitive due to the worlds they have lived...choose your language wisely and kindly.
