I was surrounded by people, but yet so alone

I was 19, halfway through my degree and had my whole career ahead of me. I always wanted to be a mum but I was with the wrong person and I wasn’t ready. It was the hardest, yet easiest decision I had ever made. I found my abortion hard, both physically and mentally, even 1.5 years on, I’ll never forget, only grow and understand what happened that day. I was in an unhealthy relationship, their attitude throughout the pregnancy and abortion was wrong, but I powered through and here I am today, a first class degree and now completing my masters in a subject I am so passionate about. Abortion for me was the hardest, yet easiest decision I have ever made, I am forever grateful to the medical staff who helped me that day, enabling me to continue my studies and better my life, before bringing a new life into this world.
