Newbie saying HELLO

Recommended Posts

Greetings all,


Am here after breaking shackle and chains. Looking forward without stepping back,

Though... I stumble and fall to the sounds of the clinking past.

A survivor at battle of now... my own mentally.

I'm actually too good at talking because I seem to spew way too much information about myself, my struggles, the pain and hurt just takes over. 

(learning to not share soo much) even though I feel it helps me with the healing process it can however open one up to become vulnerable. (learned the hard way about that) 


OK here goes... 


I'm RayaHope here to seek a safe place to express, unleash and hopefully get some understanding to the new me I've become.

Hi RayaHope,

Welcome to AS. I am sorry for the reason you find yourself here, but you will find tons of support here. Our members are truly understanding and kind. You are free to share whatever you are comfortable with, without pressure or judgment. It takes courage to just say hello and I acknowledge that. Also, are those words above of your own design...or a quote from something? If these are yours, it sounds like you have a poet's soul. :)  We do have a Healing thru Creativity forum, if you are so inclined.

Anyway, I am glad you have found us and wish you the very best on this journey of healing.

Thank you :) yes my words they are. After many years of failed help (professionally) I found myself within writing. However I'm dyslexic but thanks to websites have found my way around to be able to write, to express and heal within words.
