A message of HOPE

“A Community Problem Requires a Community Solution”

Hope has been such a powerful thing for me, and I believe one of the most underestimated ingredients in the post-release prison space.

It has taken my 20 years to build my confidence and become comfortable to speak about the reality of my situation and journey openly.

What I have learnt is if I don’t want to be who I was, I need to become who I am.

 This process isn’t easy, but it is possible. 

When I speak about my time in prison, I try not to glorify it; when I tell my story of how I ended up in jail, it is as simple as this.

I made some terrible choices, as a result of becoming so desperate and done some fucked up things to myself and others.

 However, today I no longer want to be that person. 

Can you help me not be that person? Because I need help not to be that person. 

Have you ever made a mistake? Please don’t judge me at my worst support me to become my best.

Don’t get stuck in your fucking story. Telling it to random strangers who are ill-equipped to respond appropriately. 

THIS WILL KEEP YOU STUCK.

These stories should only be shared with qualified medical professionals if you need to get help with this.

 I HAD TOO

 If you’re out there thinking you need to be all hard and shit.

 The hardest fuckers I know are the guys who can share their emotions and feelings with each other. This can still scare me today.

Change is possible
