Hoping so hard for whats right. πŸ’•

Re: Taking the plunge

@Maggie, @Sherry and anyone reading - I did it and an order was made in my favour (I won)πŸ‘πŸ˜. It was incredibly intense and scary and super full on. I was so anxious I was physically sick before I left but calmed enough (just) to face it, shakily get what I needed to say out and then tolerate all of the arguments from the other side. It was incredibly empowering and I'm feeling super proud. The real estate will change some of their processes to make sure this kind of thing doesn't happen again too (I'm sure that's to cover themselves but whatever- it makes it better for people like me) which makes it feel like this fight was even more worth it. I feel really good (and really exhausted!).

Thanks for all of your encouragement and support. It really helps.

I hope things have gone OK or better for you Sherry and Maggie I hope there's good happening for you too.

Yay πŸŽ‰

Re: Taking the plunge

You should be too @CheerBear That is no little thing you have done - you stood up for yourself and your rights and it is wonderful that you not only won but did it on your own away CB because you have done something so scary but the outcome is wonderful.
