Hi everyone! I don't know why it has been so hard for me to make this first post on AS. I feel like speaking out is the next step I need to take to continue this journey of healing. In my heart I feel weak for reaching out for help but in my conscious mind, I know this is not rational. I know I need to speak out about the crimes and abuse inflicted upon me. So I am joining all the brave resilient beautiful souls here at AS. I am taking this step.

Welcome, Created! It takes a lot of courage and strength to reach out. The journey can indeed be a lengthy one. Still, there always needs to be a start. This is something that no one can really do alone and you are not weak at all reaching out. It's hard to find that balance in between our heart and mind. Just one part of what makes this all so difficult. No need to rush at all. You'll never take a more important journey. My sincere hope is that you will find a lot of healing and immense help here.

:luck:

Welcome to AS.  You may think you are weak for reaching out but I can tell you its the bravest and hardest thing to do.  It is so out of our comfort zone and not feeling in control. You will find you are not alone here,  we understand what you are feeling.
