Hello you :0) My name is Shy Keenan …I was born and broken in Birkenhead Merseyside in the 1960’s …and am described by some as “three times stronger than any household bleach”.
Born Karen, then, as soon as I was able, I changed my name to Peeta, until, years later, when I was forced to change my name again to Shy ..in order to do the job of the child protectors.
I really want us to start off on the right foot, so here’s a little bit more about me, before you just go right ahead and just fall madly ‘in like’ with me.
“I started out with nothing and still have most of that left.” An orphaned broken kid in Care (or as we used to call it ‘Don’t Care’) I came through the three metric inches of education I did get as a child ‘completely uneducated’, but I am a hard worker who, despite the lifelong challenges (that bad broken childhoods bring to the ‘whole life’ table) likes to work and earn my own way through life.
I’m a housebound ‘differently abled’ person who also manages civilian Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. I am both passive & aggressive, I am indeed, Bi-Furious! :0O
I only share this with you, in the hope that it will help you to understand why we (The Phoenix Post Team) mostly meet and work together ‘virtually’.
Broken I want you to know, my childhood abusers never made me what I am today, I was born this strong, they just tested that strength ..and lost.
Broken as I am, I still know the difference between right and wrong, good and bad and I work hard every day, to live a good life worth living, as a person who sincerely, wholeheartedly believes in that wonderful old saying ..whatever doesn’t kill me …had better start running.
All human people have good & bad in us ..my faith is firmly placed in the good and potential good in me and in the good in others, I have come to learn that ‘the only way bad people prevail, is when good men and women do nothing, so try hard not to be a nothing doer.
I’ve also learnt that hate damages everything, never fixes a thing ..that we can’t beat bad ‘with bad’ and I have always known that “the only way to stop it, is to find a way to tell ..and that the very best revenge, is to survive ..and survive well.” Shy Keenan ..nth
