When I first got here I was broken down in pieces. I was depressed. I thought I was useless and hopeless, and I had low self-esteem. I had been put down as a dad and a partner.
Coming here made me stronger as myself. I know what I am for my kids and know that I’m a good dad.
If the relationship with my girlfriend doesn’t work out, I know I can go out there and find someone else.
I feel okay being by myself. Before, I felt depressed when I was alone. Now I am fine by myself.
I know who I am. If someone wants to be my partner, she’d have to be part of a team, contribute and help out.
