How do you escape the emotional torment of constantly having your hopes and dreams crushed by the person you build those dreams around? What will it take for you to break free from the pit of desolation and despair that binds you in its web?
Blinded by her pursuit of happiness and silenced by her fear of being exposed, Carrie’s life is a constant battle with loneliness. All she wants is for someone to love her.
Growing up in the Gardiner family in the 70s was noisy and chaotic; the sounds of arguments or laughter always echoing around the house. As one of seven children Carrie always thought her life was perfect and she dreamed of one day having the perfect marriage just like her parents. Her brothers and sisters teased her mercilessly about her romantic notions but she ignored them all.
Her idyllic world was shattered when at the age of fifteen her parents divorced. It was a bitter parting that Carrie never quite understood. Carrie was heartbroken. Each new revelation about her parent’s troubled marriage fuelled Carrie’s determination to prove that a marriage could last forever and she argued vehemently with anyone who suggested otherwise.
When good looking broody Mark entered her life at the age of seventeen Carrie set about building the perfect world she’d always dreamed of. No matter what life threw at her, when she got married it would be for life. For better, for worse.
However, the world she’d created was very different from the reality of life and Carrie became trapped in her own web of misery, loneliness and isolation. She knew what she needed to do but she just couldn’t bring herself to break free and admit she was wrong. The longer it went on the more her confidence and strength ebbed away and the further into despair and desolation she fell. It was going to take something very powerful and someone very special to set her free.
