letter from a former resident of the House
When I left my abusive relationship, I was totally deceived and broken. I
was fearful, scared, shattered and moving without any hope. I was worried
and stressed about how I would be able to survive with my little son in this
country where I did not know anyone.
When I was in Osborne House and my application to stay in Alpha House was
accepted it gave me a sense of relief that at least I would have a roof over
my head. Honestly at that time I was very doubtful about everything. I did
not know what Alpha House was about or how things work there.
After moving to Alpha House I realized that it was a blessing for my son and
I to come here and stay. I came to know kindness is not tendered on demand.
The help and support I received at Alpha House is beyond words and cannot be
expressed. I can only say that if there are worries and fears in my mind and
I need their help but there are 100 steps between me and them, I need to
take just one step because the other 99 steps they take to help me. They are
always there to help.
From time to time they always listened with care and concern. They are
always there through my every tear, through all my sad sorrows and through
every laugh. They always helped me to not be scared about the things I am
fearful of. They always helped me deal with my strife.
The whole year at Alpha House is a period of learning and internal growth.
In my abusive relationship I was totally lost
somewhere. There was no confidence left in me. With the help and support I
received at Alpha House I rediscovered myself. They helped me to dig out the
hidden talents in me I was not aware I possess.
Everybody at Alpha House helped bring back my smile and pleasure. I have
learned how strong, valuable, capable and deserving I am as a human being.
They made me understand how I need to love myself for who I am. I have
learned that I am responsible for only my own feelings and that I do now owe
anyone else an explanation for my own behaviour.
With all the help at Alpha House my thoughts are now under my own control. I
am relaxed and everything is getting better everyday. I am able to
understand clearly how my child and I will benefit from the healthy changes
that have resulted being away from this abusive relationship. There are
endless opportunities in life to try.
I cannot return to Alpha House what they have given to me accept to say
thank you for being there for me.
