I love writing. I love how words fit together like jigsaw pieces; allowing us to express ideas, share poetry, update readers with news, give and receive support, enjoy stories, discover inspirations, write letters, educate ourselves and others... the list goes on and on.
I like journaling. I find it therapeutic when clogged up thoughts spill out onto a page, freeing my brain and leaving space for new ideas and more peaceful moments. Clarity can be found on that page when all the words are there - I value that too.
I love this online community of survivors. I've never been part of an online forum group before, or even a 'support network/group' of any kind. So this is a first for me, and it's one of the most important decisions I made while dealing with the aftermath from my past. To the survivor reading this: I love the empathy and sensitivity here. You are all understanding souls who 'get it' and hear others without judgement... because you know how complex it all is from your own experiences. I love this trusted, safe space because it's comforting to know you might feel soothed and less lonely when you post topics, receive supportive replies, aquire new insights and ideas for healing from a thread, share buried pain and find ways to process it, and develop new friendships with good people. I love the fact that I have the chance to offer support to you and our fellow survivors, how we gather and stick together with good, trusted intentions... because we care about each other.
So here's my blog - it's going to be my platform to share good stuff, express difficulties (and share my solutions to them), and to generally waffle on because writing is my way of picking up a brush to paint a picture. It makes me feel better and I hope my finished pictures won't look too obscure!
