Hello Everyone

Recommended Posts

I just wanted to make a little introductory post to say "Hi".

I admit it's taken me a while to take this step. I found this forum over a month ago, and it took a couple weeks to get the courage to register, and even after I was fully registered, it took at least another week to make this first post. I have no idea with this is so difficult, but I'm really hoping to be able to find people here who understand and can relate, and gain some comfort and healing through the process...one step at a time :)

Hi, Sunrise Kitten! Welcome to the site. There always needs to be a first step and you have already showed strength in taking it. Please do not beat yourself up too much for waiting though. Healing journeys have to take place at our own pace. Not much good has ever come when things are forced. I hope that being here proves to help.

Thank you @Hawkgirl, @Ian37, and @howlieowl. I'm glad I'm not the only one who had trouble taking the step and joining up initially. Hopefully it'll get a little easier as I go and adjust. It's already nice seeing people take the time to respond and welcome me :)

Hi Sunrise Kitten,

Welcome to AS. I am very sorry you experienced something that would bring you here, but you will find tons of support. It's ok to take a little time, look around, and find your footing here. It is a big step, one you needed to be ready to take. I am glad you found yourself ready. I wish you the best as you begin this journey.

Mary

Sunrise Kitten, I think that one thing you may find here is a certain sense of unity. This comes as a result of being around other souls who can sort of relate. Not that anyone will ever fully know what specific trauma you've been through. Still there is a sense of general understanding. Realizing that you're really not alone may prove to be rather powerful.

Thank you everyone for your kind words. I feel very comforted by them and I'm trying, I think, to wrap my mind around the idea that there are actually so many people here who can relate and understand in their own ways. It's simultaneously sad to acknowledge that, as well as encouraging to think that I'm really not alone. I look forward to stepping out and exploring the rest of the forums here.

Hi @Sunrise Kitten, I feel the same torn feelings. I feel so sad that so many other people feel the way I do, but at the same time I am relieved that I no longer have to go through this alone. Hope you find what you're looking for here.
