Confidence comes in many forms

What’s your name?


Hey Sara, I’m Charlie. I’m your ward doctor.

Sara didn’t say anything.

You know why you’re here right?


We’re gonna work together on this. You’re going to get better. Is it okay if I ask you some questions?


When did you first notice something was wrong?

Every day for the past 8-years.

When did you get pregnant?

Two years ago.

Do you know who the father is?


Were you using whilst you were pregnant?

I don’t know.

How did you get here?

I brought myself in.


Sara didn’t respond. She was facing the other way.


Sara, it’s okay if you don’t want to talk, I can come back tomorrow.

Sara turned around.

My daughter doesn’t deserve a mother like me.

What kind of mother does she deserve?

I don’t know.

Well, you’ve made the right choice being here.

Sara looked at Charlie. She had tears in her eyes but her lips formed a nervous smile.

It’s easy to be confident when things are going well.

You’ve got a good job, a happy relationship, buying food isn’t a problem.

But what about when things aren’t going so well?

A confident person doesn’t always mean the well-dressed guy walking into the room with his head held high.

It’s also the person who hasn’t been through the best of circumstances but still takes it upon themselves to make a change.

Sara decided to make a change.
