About the author - Zelia Cox
As I sit here in front of my computer writing this bio about myself, I realise that there is nothing much to say. I am a single mom, who has had to fight life’s curve balls every day of every year which does not render me a hero or one of life success stories, it just renders me as one of the MILLIONS of other single moms out there doing the same thing. Survive. When a child comes into your life, regardless of the circumstance you find yourself, you change, and you change for the better.
I rebelled at a very young age, and put my parents through hell. When my Dad passed, I lost my ‘rock’ my ‘life line’, but you know what made it possible for me to carry on? My daughter.
I never was ever lucky in the love department. Always being attracted to the wrong type. Still am, to this day. I was told recently that it’s because I don’t see myself as deserving of any better. That could be so true.
My mother once told me that the guy I am looking for is impossible to find. But why can’t I find a guy who is as dangerous as all hell, yet so committed to me and my child and would stop at nothing to protect us. I guess life doesn’t work that way, it’s either one or the other.
I have lived my whole life always trying to please others or making sure the opinions of me that others had was all positive. I’ve lived a life of solitude. I am happy with who I am and I am happy with the life choices I have made. Most of all, I am so proud of the person my daughter has become.
