The words of Christine McGuinness in her interview
Initially, but I think it’s normal, I was very surprised, almost stunned but then, I started to understand many things about my childhood, which was a lot of fun.
I remember playing in the garden with my brother and sister and always enjoying being at home with my mother. When I was a child I really struggled at school: I couldn’t make friends, socialize and fit in.
The only place I felt good was at home, I was really comfortable there. My mother perhaps, she understood that something was wrong but, despite this, she always tried to be positive.
She inspired me a lot, as a mother with three children, I learned to smile every day. It’s okay to be yourself, always, and that’s the message I want to convey to my three children.
