"Reflection of  My Life' is a relatively new website I created during 2021 after the loss of two significant people in my life. 

The online journal are assisting me to come to terms with these losses and to provide content, context and reference to my (bewildered) sense of self and dealing with an abusive relationship.

'Reflections of My Life' is not about the judgment of anybody else's behaviour in relation to me, but rather a description of behaviors as perceived and experienced by me in spending time in various personal relationships.

"I can only be responsible for my own behaviour, either in relationship with other people and / or when I am on my own" — Vernon Chalmers
