Let me narrate a few pages from my life. When I was in an abusive relationship, I had to do almost everything for my child, all by myself. Dropping and picking him up from school, paying the school fees, preparing his lunch/snacks/dinner, taking him son out to play, to museums, and parks. So I was […]

“Fake it until you make it” is a popular catchphrase that helps people to fake confidence before they actually get it. It is not only applicable for confidence in corporate sector. It can also be used for any situation. By any, I mean any. During the stages of physical and emotional abuse in my marriage, […]
Swimming is the only activity which I get to do peacefully, alone. 20 to 30 minutes are those precious and cherished minutes where I am in deep silence, doing nothing else but swimming. Though I am not a pro swimmer, I learnt how to breath outside water, all by myself. Well not exactly I took […]
After the sudden dismissal of my loving husband, life for me and kids was like paused... we lost all the fun, laughter’s and family times we used to have together as a family … upon forced invitation I used to attend some gatherings and found that I don’t have anything common to talk nor anyone in this world had time to know what was happening in mine and kids life ... One fortunate day got to know about this Family and a it happened that I and kids were part of an event and I got to meet most wonderful, patient, and loving people of this family … all were just like me and going through lives challenges alone and still each one was so persistent enough to listen to family members issues and give support n encourage them as much as possible.. . I had a strong feeling that there is a family which cares for me and kids too ... at times when I felt low and to my surprise I would get a message from the admin or by any members of this family, just ask how I am and if I needed any help .. Its gods greatest blessings that I n my kids are part of this family. Thanks to Admin for going that extra mile to be there for all the family members … god bless and keep this going
When I was hunting for a safe, credible, sensible and useful group for single moms, I came to know about the Phoenix community. Initially, I was skeptical cos it was run by a single dad. However, I gave it a shot and since then, there has been no moment where I regretted for it. It's a family of strong people, who are different from the lot and have beautiful perspective towards things in life. In this group, I feel at home and feel good to celebrate the good days, vent out on the frustrating days, cry on the depressed days and yet I know they would never look down upon me. The wavelength and the bonding is so strong that you can never fall apart or go wrong even if you wish to.
Hats off to the man who is keeping the group intact with his light headedness ( I didn't mean it literally), wisdom, practical solutions and for giving a different angle to all kind of problems faced by the fellow members of the family. It takes enormous commitment and he is fantastic!!!
Looking forward to a great family/community for the single parents who can be rest assured that they will never be mistaken or judged, whatever profession they may be!!! I am myself, when am in the family....thanks to all the beautiful people out here....
